It was developed by Madhya Pradesh Power Generation Company Limited (MPPGCL). The total cost of this project was Rs. 7,820 crore.The total capacity for thermal power generation increased to 4500 MW after the launch of two plants. It will help meet the rising demand for power in the state.

Prime Minister Modi gave a speech on this day marking the inauguration of thermal power plant. He regarded the supply of electricity throughout the country is quite important. He emphasized infrastructure is very important for the progress of the country. Our target is to provide enduring infrastructure. Narendra Modi wants to increase the speed of development. Among the various types of infrastructure, power is quite important. It will revolutionize the quality of life of the Indians. No Indian should live in scarcity of electricity or water. Narendra Modi has repeatedly stated that he wishes to have a quality of life structure for his country people. As we have mentioned that Narendra Modi operates at root cause of the problem. He has identified it well that if India needs to progress then electricity, roads, digitization and clean India are basics to achieve that success.
The Prime Minister pointed out that after 1947, power did not reach every part of our country. Still many areas suffer from acute power deficit. Millions of villages still do not have electricity. The Narendra Modi Government firmly resolved to provide power to all citizens. He emphasized the importance of hydropower when he recently visited Bhutan and Nepal. He also visited the state of Jammu and Kashmir on power issues. Our Government wants to store all sources of energy. He gave primary importance of clean energy like solar energy and wind energy. The Prime Minister discussed the condition of farmers burdened by debt in Vidarbha. They commit suicide. He felt that providing electricity to those areas could prevent suicides. Using electricity water could be taken out and irrigate the fields. The irrigation could be carried out with the help of solar energy. They can save their crop and earn their livelihood. In this way, the Indian farmers can pay off their agricultural loan.
Several villages lack access to electricity. Who are these people affected? Not the rich but the poor. Shouldn’t they get electricity: PM — PMO India (@PMOIndia) March 5, 2015
Shri Narendra Modi said that fuel supply should be restored for power projects of India. It will help us maximize the production of electricity. We have to use electricity wisely. The students should learn how to save electricity. In schools, the students should be taught how to save electricity by switching off lights, when not in use. It should be the mission of every Indian citizen.
Think of ways to conserve electricity. It is very important: PM @narendramodi

As human activities start with the sunrise, so all activities of a modern society depend on electricity. As we are lagging behind in thermal power, we need to supplement it with alternate sources of energy such as solar power, hydro power plants and many other safe options for humanity. Without substantial growth in power supply, we cannot make progress.0
