Bangladesh will receive electricity from power plant in Jharkhand

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.

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.
