A total of seven companies participated in the reverse auction, collectively submitting bids for a cumulative capacity of 1750 MW.

The letter of agreement will be issued by NTPC by mid-September 2018, followed by the signing of a power purchase agreement. The project shall be commissioned within 18 months from the signing date of the agreement.
