      Bangladesh will start receiving electricity from power plant in Jharkhand from March- Energy Minister Nasrul Hamid

      Bangladesh will start receiving electricity from the Godda power plant in Jharkhand from the first week of March, says state minister for power Nasrul Hamid. Talking to media in Dhaka on Sunday, Nasrul Hamid said 750-megawatt power will come from the first unit of Adani power plant in Godda in March. Another 750 megawatt of power will come from the second unit of the Godda power plant in April.

      Setting to rest speculation on the issue, the power minister said that there is no concern about Adani's electricity import and discussion on it is baseless, reports the official news agency BSS. He said Bangladesh will get the electricity from the Indian company at a competitive market price.

      The Minister also assured that several coal-based power plants will start production soon and there is no worry about the electricity supply during the coming irrigation season. He said that the first unit of the Maitree super thermal power plant at Rampal has already come into operation and the SS power and Barisal power plant will start generating electricity soon.

      The Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) signed an agreement with Adani group for importing electricity from its plant at Godda in Jharkhand. Consequently, two units of 800 MW each are being built by the Adani power company to supply electricity exclusively to Bangladesh. It has also constructed a dedicated transmission line to supply power from India to Bangladesh.
