The Prime Minister inaugurated seven projects and laid the foundation stone for a project of Power Grid Corporation of India. Of the seven projects commissioned include the National Hydroelectric Power Corporation’s (NHPC’s) 380 mw Solar Project in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, expected to generate approximately 792 million units of green power annually, and Bundelkhand Saur Urja Limited’s (BSUL’s) 1200 mw Jalaun Ultra Mega Renewable Energy Power Park in Jalaun, Uttar Pradesh, expected to produce around 2400 million units of electricity each year.

Additionally, the Prime Minister inaugurated three solar power projects developed by Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam (SJVN) in Jalaun and Kanpur Dehat, Uttar Pradesh, collectively amounting to 200 mw capacity, and laid the foundation stones for others. He also inaugurated the Naitwar Mori Hydro Power station along with its associated transmission line in Uttarkashi, Uttarakhand, and laid the foundation stone for two solar projects of SJVN in Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh, and Dhubri, Assam, along with the 382 mw Sunni Dam Hydro Electric Project in Himachal Pradesh.

Furthermore, he laid the foundation stone for TUSCO’s 600 mw Lalitpur Solar Power Project in Lalitpur district of UP, anticipated to generate 1200 million units of green power annually. Additionally, the Prime Minister inaugurated ReNew’s Koppal-Narendra Transmission Scheme, with a capacity to evacuate 2500 mw of power from Renewable Energy sources, located in the Koppal district of Karnataka. Other significant power sector-related projects by Damodar Valley Corporation and IndiGrid were also inaugurated during the visit.

Beyond the power sector, the Prime Minister dedicated the newly electrified Ambari – Adilabad – Pimpalkhuti rail line to the nation and laid the foundation for two major National Highway projects connecting Telangana with Maharashtra and Telangana with Chhattisgarh through NH-353B and NH-163.
