Two TPPs okayed, Dhopave not considered

Steel Guru : Environment nod for 2 thermal power projects in Maharashtra:
"Mr Jairam Ramesh minister of state for environment and forests (independent charge) informed the Lok Sabha that government of Maharashtra has submitted two proposals namely 1600 MW Imported Coal based Thermal Power Plant at Dhopawe and 3x660 MW expansion/ replacement of units of Koradi Thermal power plant at Koradi for seeking Environment Clearance.

The Environment Clearance for expansion/replacement of units at Koradi Thermal Power Plant has been granted. The project at Dhopave could not be considered for environmental clearance due to incomplete information provided by the State Government."
