Raj West Power in deal to set up power project in Barmer

Rajasthan will soon have another lignite-based power project. Rajasthan State Mines & Minerals Ltd (RSSML) has signed an agreement with Raj West Power Ltd for setting up a Rs 5,000-crore lignite-based power plant of 1,000 MW as a joint venture in Barmer district. This has been confirmed by Rajat Kumar Mishra, managing director of RSSML.
 
"For this purpose, a new company called Barmer Lignite Mining Corporation will be registered shortly," Mishra said.
 
This would be a state government enterprise and in this venture RSMML would have a 51 per cent stake. "Lignite for this power plant will be supplied by RSSML through its Jalipa and Kapurdi mines in the district," he added.
 
This would be the second major lignite power project in the state. Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC) has started work on the major lignite-mining-cum-power project in Bikaner district.
