Appraisal of DPR of SJVN’s 900 MW Arun-3 HEP in Nepal is held up as Central Electricity Authority (CEA) is yet to receive a key clearance from Central Soil and Materials Research Station (CSMRS). However, according to CSMRS, Nepal, it had sought certain clarifications from the project developer, that is, SJVN, and the same were received by it only recently.

It may be noted that timely appraisal of DPR is critical as SJVN has already applied for Generation License in the month of July 2013 which is valid for 30 years including construction period. Unless the DPR is approved, SJVN will not be able to commence work at the project site.
