The Chief Minister visited NTPC's (National Thermal Power Corporation) 1,600 MW plant coming up at Ramagundam and reviewed the work with senior officials.
NTPC officials informed KCR that two units of total 800 ME capacity will become operational in October next year while another two units of the same capacity will be ready in February 2021.
Under the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act, the Centre had agreed make 4,000 MW available to Telangana. The NTPC plant is being built as part of this.
KCR said it would take more than a year for this power to become available to the state.
The state is supplying 24 hour quality power to all sectors including agriculture. In addition to this, the Kaleshwaram irrigation project will become operational in July this year. For it alone, 6,000 MW power is required and thus the overall demand for power will go up, he said.
