The expert committee of ministry of environment & forests (MOE&F) has accorded environmental clearance for the proposed 1320 mw mega thermal power project at Jhajjar on the basis of super critical technology. This has paved the way for the establishment of such projects in the state with supercritical technology.

A spokesman for the Haryana Power Generation Corporation Ltd. said on Wednesday that the senior officers of MOE&F in a meeting with the HPGCL discussed the issue in detail and agreed with the proposal. Earlier, environmental clearance for setting up the project with sub critical technology was conveyed by the MOE&F. The 1320 mw Jhajjar project would have two units . The first unit of the project is expected to be commissioned by December 2011 and the second unit by April 2012.
