Tripura demand to finalizing power trading project with Bangladesh

Tripura power minister Manik Dey on 23 January demanded finalizing of India’s power trading project with Bangladesh, in which Tripura will play a key role. He said India had agreed two years ago to supply power to Bangladesh from Tripura’s quota in the Palatana power project, after Sheikh Hasina granted permission to ONGC’s thermal power company, OTPC, to move dimensional equipment through Bangladesh’s Ashuganj port.
The Centre had agreed to offer Bangladesh 10 per cent equity and 250 MW power in the agreement after both units of the 726 MW gas-based Palatana project had been commissioned. However, the deal is yet to happen, leaving Tripura with surplus power.
