Creation of intra state transmission system in 7 states gets cabinet nod

 The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA), chaired by the Prime Minister, has approved the creation of an intra state transmission system in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Rajasthan.
The ambitious project is estimated to cost Rs 8,548.68 crore with central government contribution from National Clean Energy Fund (NCEF) of ` 3,419.47 crore which is 40 per cent of the total estimated cost of project.
The activities envisaged under the project includes establishment of 48 new grid sub-stations of different voltage levels with total transformation capacity around 17,100 mega volt ampere (MVA) by installing over 7,800 circuit kilometres (ckt-kms) of transmission lines in these seven states. The project is proposed to be completed within a period of three to five years.
The cost on creating intra-state transmission system is proposed to be met through KfW loan (40 per cent of the total cost), NCEF grant (40 per cent of the total cost) and the remaining 20 per cent as state contribution.
These states are rich in renewable resource potential and large capacity renewable power projects are planned there. “Creation of an intra state transmission system will facilitate evacuation of renewable power from generation stations to load centres,” the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy said.
