As per a leading financial daily, 18 power plants have emerged as successful bidders in the reverse e-auction to receive Rs 17.8 bn subsidy for buying imported gas. The offered subsidy is a move that will help revive a cumulative generation capacity of 11,717.72 Mega Watts (MW). Under the plan, liquefied natural gas (LNG) will be imported and cash-strapped state power distribution companies will be financially supported to buy electricity from them. NTPC, Torrent Power, Gujarat Industries Power Co and CLP India Private Ltd were reported as the successful bidders under this auction.
