Himachal government cancels 7 hydel projects

Himachal government has cancelled allotments of 7 mini-hydel projects for violating terms and conditions by the Independent Power Producers (IPPs).  The cancelled projects are 5 MW Koot in Shimla district, 3 MW Chennari and 4.5 MW Bakhali projects, 2 MW in Mandi district, 2.5 MW in Moujhi in Kangra district, 3 MW in Machad-II. Many of the IPP’s will forfeit their bank gurantees and EMD’s. It may be seen as failure of the state government to award these projects to local entrepreneurs who failed to complete the projects. Now, the govt. is considering to issue fresh ads to invite proposals to revive these projects. Out of 191 projects, only 10% have been completed.
