Adani Power Project Godda is a proposed 1600 MW coal fired power project promoted by Adani Power at Godda district in Jharkhand, India
The Adani group is likely to start work on its 1,600 MW power project at Godda district.
The agreement, signed by Adani Power and the Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB), is aimed at developing the thermal power plant and supplying the entire power generated to BPDB through a dedicated transmission line.
The Rs.13,906 crore project was, however, put on hold in May over environmental concerns such as inadequate information about the withdrawal of water from the nearby Chir river and the water use.
Meanwhile, the environment ministry’s expert appraisal committee (EAC) of thermal power and coal-mining projects had asked Adani Power (Jharkhand) to seek a clarification from the state government’s water resources department regarding the “requirement of National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA) approval for water withdrawal, and if so, whether the same has been obtained”.
about 1,000 acres of land have been acquired. Land acquisition process has been completed for the Adani’s ultra mega power project in the state and are in the process of distributing awards to landholders.
