The operating plants registered highest generation surpassing the previous high of 26,472 MUs during the year 2010-11.

According to the official, NPCIL’s authorised capital is Rs 15,000 crore of which the paid-up component is Rs 10,174.33 crore.

Sources said prior to listing, four independent directors will be appointed on the company board to comply with the Securities and Exchange Board of India’s listing norm of having equal number of executive and non-executive directors.
