New Delhi: Concerned at the slow progress in expanding electricity generation capacity, the power ministry has asked NTPC Ltd to sign the gas purchase deal with Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) for projects other than expanding the Kawas and Gandhar units, on which a legal dispute is on with the private company.
“We don’t want to cause any harm to power generation but we will not disturb NTPC’s ongoing case with RIL; the agreement will be for the plants other than the Kawas and Gandhar expansion projects,” power minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said.
