Puducherry_Puducherry Power_ProjectsMonitorA proposal to enhance power production at the Puducherry Power Corporation’s plant in Karaikal is being considered by the Union Government. In this regard, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation(ONGC) has been entrusted with a task to source 20 lakh cubic metres of gas per day to the Puducherry Power Corporation Limited in Karaikal so as to increase energy generation capacity from 32 MW to 800 MW, according to Union Petroleum Minister Veerappa Moily.

ONGC has agreed to meet this requirement on a priority basis and would supply the gas within two years to the plant of Puducherry Power Corporation, Minister added.

The Puducherry will soon witness an improvement in power generation as the government will accord priority for land acquisition and other allied work to increase the power generation.
