Hope end to NHPC impasse: Goel

The Centre is hopeful. It wants an end to the three year long impasse over the NHPC-owned power project in Gerukamukh along the Assam-Aunachal Pradesh border.

Addressing a function in New Delhi on Tuesday, Union power minister Piyush Goel said that he was hopeful to resolve the dispute between Arunachal Pradesh and Assam over the Lower Subansiri Hydro Power Project by next month.

He said, “we are looking to resolve the dispute by next month after calling officials from Assam.”

Developed by NHPC, cost of the project cost has gone up by about ₹1,200 crore due to forced suspension of work since December 2011. The company has already spent ₹6,600 crore.
