This inauguration of Unit #2, Stage-I, underscores the government’s unwavering commitment to enhancing the country’s energy infrastructure.

R. K. Singh,the Union Minister for Power and New & Renewable Energy recently marked a significant milestone by dedicating a 660 MW Unit of the Barh Super Thermal Power Project to the nation. This inauguration of Unit #2, Stage I, underscores the government’s unwavering commitment to enhancing the country’s energy infrastructure.

While addressing the development, Singh extended gratitude and congratulated the Team NTPC, including the diligent engineers and workers who contributed to the successful completion of the unit. He expressed his optimism about the upcoming third unit of the project, emphasizing NTPC’s pivotal role in meeting more than 90 percent of Bihar’s power requirements.

Highlighting the transformative journey of the nation’s power sector, he underscored the remarkable progress achieved over the past nine years. From a power-deficit scenario, India has emerged as a power-surplus nation, with an integrated grid operating seamlessly on a single frequency. Furthermore, the government is taking substantial efforts in strengthening the distribution systems across all states, funded with a sanctioned budget exceeding₹2 lakh crores. As a result, rural areas now enjoy an average of 20 ½ hours of power availability, while urban areas relish an average of 23 ½ hours.

In his address, the Minister underscored the Ministry of Power’s commitment to consumers’ rights through the Electricity (Rights of Consumers) Rules, 2020, enacted under the Electricity Act, 2003. These rules ensure expedited services for new connections and refunds, enhancing the consumer experience.

The event also witnessed the felicitation of the dedicated engineers and workers responsible for the successful completion of Unit #2 (660MW) of the Barh project. Gyanendra Kumar Singh, MLA from Barh, also shared his perspectives during the event. Gurdeep Singh, CMD of NTPC, extended a warm welcome to the Minister and other dignitaries, expressing gratitude for their continuous guidance and support. The occasion was graced by the presence of dignitaries such as K Sreekant, CMD of PowerGrid, Dilip Kumar Patel, Director (HR) of NTPC, Ujjwal Kanti Bhattacharya, Director (Projects) of NTPC, and senior officials from the Government of Bihar, NTPC, and other key stakeholders.”
