Raghunathpur Thermal Power Project

Raghunathpur thermal power project is a proposed 1200 (MW) coal-fired power project promoted by Damodar Valley Corporation ( DVC)  at Purulia district in West Bengal, India. An additional 1,320 MW has also been proposed at the site.

The first phase was supposed to become operational in November 2014. But because of major issues such as non-availability of land, water and rail connectivity, the project has been delayed. A second phase (1320 MW)  has also been proposed.

Unit 1 was commissioned in August 2014, and Unit 2 is planned for March 2015. Phase II is under construction and planned for completion by 2017.
