The mega power project of the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) coming up in Lara of Raigarh district had landed in trouble with people from nine villages resorting to agitation over rehabilitation.
Country’s largest power producer, the NTPC is setting up a 5X800 MW Super thermal Power Project at Lara in Raigarh District of Chhattisgarh. The project is based on super critical technology. The coal requirement will be met from Talaipalli Coal Block of Mand Raigarh Coalfields.
The company required 3500 acres of land for the project. The state-owned Chhattisgarh State Industrial Development Corporation (CSIDC) acquired the land and transferred it to the company. The construction work on the project had already started.
