UP power regulator issues notice to Lanco over Anpara project

The Uttar Pradesh State Electricity Regulatory Commission (UPSERC) has issued notice to Lanco Anpara Power Pvt Ltd on a petition challenging the change in capacity of the Anpara C thermal power project from 1,000 Mw to 1,200 Mw. The project, located in Sonbhadra district, is already behind schedule by eight months. Lanco Infratech, another Lanco Group company, was in the news in 2007 when the 4,000-Mw ultra-mega power project at Sasan in Madhya Pradesh was taken away from it for allegedly flouting bid conditions.
