HYDRO Power Projects
The Union Minister of State for Power, Shri K.C.Venugopal, informed Lok Sabha today in a written reply that presently, four Hydro Electric Projects (HEPs) (above installed capacity of 25 MW) are being constructed in the country with the assistance of Asian Development Bank (ADB). All these HEPs are located in Himachal Pradesh. In this regard, Himachal Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (HPPCL), a State Government undertaking had informed that a group of people with unverified credentials had written to ADB to stop funding based on unsubstantiated allegations. HPPCL had stated that preliminary verification of these allegations revealed that the report was not based on facts and appeared to be motivated and biased.
