South India’s transmission capacity to be 18K MW by FY20 – Feedback

In a bid to achieve ‘One Grid One Nation’ objective, the transmission capacity across south Indian states would be enhanced to 18,000 MW by 2019-20 from 3,400 MW when NDA government took charge at the Centre, Power Minister Piyush Goyal has said.

“… In three and half years (NDA’s remaining tenure), Modi government would add transmission capacity by two time (in South India). The 3,400 MW will become 10,000 MW and by 2019-20 we hope to increase transmission capacity to 18,000 MW,” Goyal told reporters here. The minister expressed hope that with this massive flow of power to south India, government will be able to make the country “one grid one nation” which will keep the power cost under control.
