The Prime Minister has granted approval for it in the last Delhi tour. The solar power plant is scheduled to be dedicated on July 10.

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan informed that due to the cancellation of the power purchase agreement of the Madhya Pradesh Power Management Company with Damodar Valley Corporation, the Western Region Load Observation Centre has banned any kind of short term bilateral deal. He urged that this subject is under consideration in the Power Appellate Tribunal, so till the decision comes, the power purchase under short term bilateral deals should be termed valid.
