Mumbai, 23rd February, 2023: Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will dedicate Stage-I (2×800 MW) of NTPC’s Lara Super Thermal Power Station and lay the foundation stone of Stage-II (2×800 MW) of NTPC’s Lara Super Thermal Power Project through video-conferencing on 24th February 2024.

Thermal power station

Located in the Raigarh district of Chhattisgarh, coal for this pit-head power station/project will be supplied from NTPC’s Talaipalli Coal block through a Merry-Go-Round (MGR) system, ensuring supply of low-cost power with 24×7 availability to the country.

Equipped with highly efficient Super Critical technology (for Stage I) and Ultra Super Critical technology (for Stage II), all the units will ensure lesser Specific Coal Consumption and carbon dioxide emission.

While 50% of power from both Stage I & II is allocated to the state of Chhattisgarh, the project will play a crucial role in improving the power scenario in several other states, such as Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Goa, Daman & Diu, Dadra and Nagar Haveli.

Meanwhile, the installation of this project is creating direct and indirect employment opportunities in the region. Besides various Community Development initiatives are being taken up by NTPC in the nearby areas in the fields of education, drinking water, sanitation, health, and women empowerment.
