Ghatampur power project is a proposed 1980 (MW) coal-fired power project promoted by Neyveli Lignite Corporation and UPRVUNL at Kanpur district in Uttar Pradesh, India. Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC) has proposed setting up a 1980 MW (3×660 MW) coal-based power plant in Ghatampur in joint venture with NLC Uttar Pradesh Power.
The Union Ministry of Coal had allocated the Pachwara-South Block in Dumka district of Jharkhand for the project. However, residents of the area have objected to mining.
