Gujarat, MP spar over power generation

The Madhya Pradesh government has objected to a decision of the Narmada Control Authority (NCA) to halt production of electricity at the River Bed Power House of the Sardar Sarovar Project (SSP-RBPH).

NCA consented to Gujarat’s request in April this year to halt power generation at the SSP-RBPH so that the reservoir could be filled to capacity this monsoon. Operating the river bed power house at the dam site requires release of water in downstream areas of the reservoir.

In a letter addressed to NCA chairman U P Singh, Madhya Pradesh chief secretary S R Mohanty termed the decision “unilateral” and demanded that the decision should be reviewed immediately.

In the letter dated May 27, the MP chief secretary has also said that in case the decision is not reviewed immediately, a proposal for reservoir regulation should be put up before NCA at the earliest. Read More
