Time-bound plan for Jayamkondam power project

Perambalur: A high-level meeting held on Sunday has drawn up a time-bound plan for the expeditious implementation of the mine-cut project and thermal power station of the Jayamkondam Lignite Power Project (JLPP) in 2008.

The meeting decided to finalise the feasibility report for the mine and thermal station by February. The environment impact assessment (EIA) and the environment management plan (EMP) would be readied next month. They would be forwarded to the Tamil Nadu State Pollution Control Board for conducting a public hearing in April next year.

The minutes of the public hearing will be received in May and the proposal would be sent to the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests in June for clearance by September.

Meanwhile, a report on the project would be sent for approval to the Board of Directors of the Neyveli Lignite Corporation in March. The Public Investment Board would submit its report to the Union Ministry of Coal in May.

“It has been planned to obtain the clearance by the Public Investment Board by August 2008,” the Perambalur Collector, Mr Anil Meshram, said at the end of the meeting.

He said there were plans to obtain the approval of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) in November and the Centre’s sanction for the JLPP in December 2008.

The General Manager (Business Development) of Neyveli Lignite Corporation, who led the team of officials, said there were plans to generate 1,600 mw in the first phase. Two units each of 800-mw capacity would be set up. The project cost would be around Rs 10,000 crore, he said.
