Authorities pull up Jindal group over delay in Guntur WtE project

Andhra Pradesh’s newly appointed Municipal Administration and Urban Development principal secretary Y Srilakshmi has directed the Guntur administration to ensure the completion of the Jindal waste-to-energy plant at the earliest, reports The Times of India.

Srilakshmi expressed displeasure at the executives of the Jindal group for not meeting deadlines despite several extensions. Local authorities have been asked to closely monitor the progress of the plant.

Jindal is constructing the project which will generate about 15MW of power from 1,200 tonnes of garbage collected on a daily basis from Guntur and Vijayawada cities and Tenali, Sattenapalle and Mangalagiri towns. 

The project was initiated almost five years ago at an estimated cost of Rs 300 crore.
