Indian Power Stations 2019 commemorates 36 years of operations by NTPC Limited


Union Power Minister, Shri RK Singh today said “The power sector is witnessing an increased demand which is further expected to go up in the near future. The current consumption of 1200 units per capita is expected to grow 2-3 times at par with the international consumption after each and every individual of the country has access to electricity.”

Shri RK Singh was addressing the Indian Power Stations 2019, an international operation and maintenance conference organised annually by NTPC .

Talking about the issues like dearth of financing available in this sector, Shri RK Singh suggested “measures like pre-payment for consumption of electricity from both discoms and end consumers, privatising distribution companies to make the process more market oriented”.

The 8th edition of the conference was attended by over 500 delegates and it coincides with the synchronisation of NTPC’s flagship Singrauli power station on February 13th1982

Shri Singh said “We need to efficiently use all the energy sources available and devise measures to enhance the storage of energy to meet the constantly growing demand. Simultaneously, on the operations’ front, it is imperative to not postpone any scheduled maintenance of the power plants and not let the power demand dictate the running of the plants.”
