Punjab government to redevelop Guru Nanak Dev thermal power plant site

Punjab government is planning to redevelop the 1,764 acres of the now-closed Guru Nanak Dev Thermal Power Plant in Bathinda. Now, the land belonging to Punjab State Power Corporation Ltd. (PSPCL), will now be acquired by the Punjab Urban Development Authority (PUDA), under the Department of Housing and Urban Development, through a 80:20 revenue sharing scheme.

The plant was shut down in 2018 as per the modalities worked out by a sub-committee set up on August 24, 2017, for the closure of the state-owned thermal plants in view of the Central Electricity Agency (CEA) guidelines to retire non-viable thermal power plants that have exceeded 25-year life span.
