Power Grid Corp to mop up Rs 2,500 cr



“For our financial requirement, we will go for issuance of bonds. The first one will be in October-November this year for Rs 2,500 crore and...if required, another bond issue by the end of this fiscal also for about Rs 2,500 crore,” PGCIL Chairman and Managing Director S K Chaturvedi told reporters.

The PowerGrid CMD said they had sent proposals for underground sea-link between India and Sri Lanka for transmission. “The MoUs for sea-link transmission between India and Sri Lanka are to be signed. We are also working on other over-seas projects in Dubai, Nigeria and Bhutan and are in discussion with Myanmar,” he said.

The company has already completed a power transmission project in Afghanistan, Chaturvedi said, adding “Since elections were going on there, the formal handing over of the project will be done after the new government assumes charge.”
