Ultra Mega Power Projects in India:
1. have maximum generation capacity of 4000MW
2. are either coal based or hydro based
3. are wholly owned by government
Which among the above is / are correct?
UMPP are launched by Ministry of Power in association with Central Electricity Authority and Power Finance Corporation. They are awarded to developers on the basis of tariff based competitive bidding. They are not wholly owned by Government. They have min. (not max as question says) capacity of 4000MW and they are ONLY coal based not hydrobased.
