Sterlite Grid is the first private developer to commission 765 kV project in India under the ‘Build, Own, Operate and Maintain’ model. The project traversing through the states of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat will attract annual tariff of close to Rs 250 crore. The fully commissioned project will contribute significantly to the cash flow of Sterlite Grid that will operate and maintain this project for 35 years. The project will benefit close to a million households in these states. 
BDTCL project is part of the system strengthening scheme of the Western Region to facilitate the transfer of up to 5,000 MW of electricity from the coal belt in the East, to the energy deficient regions of western and northern India. It involves 765 kV Single Circuit Lines; Vadodara-Dhule-Aurangabad and Indore-Bhopal-Jabalpur, two 400 kV Double Circuit transmission lines and two 765/400 kV substations at Bhopal and Dhule to strengthen the transmission system in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat. BDTCL is considered as a critical part of national grid as it facilitates the evacuation of power from Odisha & Chhattisgarh to load centers. This network will also provide energy stability to Indore, Dewas and Aurangabad among the other industrial pocket of the route.
