Railways setting up of thermal power plants
 
Indian Railways is establishing its first coal-based captive power plant of 1,000 MW capacity at Nabinagar (Bihar) in a joint venture with National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) which is under construction.
 
Indian Railways has further planned to set up two more captive power plants in railway land — one 1,320 MW capacity coal-based power plant at Adra in Purulia district of West Bengal in a JV with National Thermal Power Corporation and another 700 MW gas power plant at ThakurIi near Kalyan in Maharashtra. Fuel linkage and environmental clearance for both these plants are in process.
 
Annual saving of about Rs. 500 crore from Nabinagar plant, Rs. 600 crore from Adra plant and Rs. 200 crore for Thakurli plant has been estimated due to reduction in electricity tariff.
