RPTL Spokesperson, while speaking on the occasion said, The qualifying for three transmission projects being undertaken for the first time through the competitive bidding guidelines issued by Govt. of India is definitely encouraging for us. It shows the high technical and financial strength the RInfra group possesses, especially in the light of disqualification faced by most of our competitors.

RInfra Spokesperson, while commenting on the issue said, ?RInfra, as an integrated infrastructure company, looks forward to such projects as one of the key infrastructure projects that would ease the flow of power from one end to another end and facilitate the overall development of the nation.

The North Karanpura transmission line is 1045 km long and will be implemented in 30 - 42 months, covering Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. Once implemented, the project will benefit Western and Northern region of India. The Talcher -II Augmentation is 592 km long and will be implemented in 30 months, covering Andhra Pradesh and Orissa. Once implemented, the project will benefit Southern and Eastern region of India.The East-North Interconnection is 950 km long and will be implemented in 36 months covering Assam, West Bengal and Bihar. Once implemented, the project will benefit Northern region of India.

Earlier, RPTL has been the lowest bidder for WRSSS II transmission project initiated by the nodal agency POWERGRID and awarded the project of construction of 1500 Kms. transmission line. This has envisaged the Company as the first ever private transmission utility to build these first ever 100% privately owned inter state transmission projects in the country, which would, on completion facilitate the smooth flow of surplus power in Eastern and Northern Regions of the Country to Western Region by the end of year 2010. The work towards this project is already commissioned to beat the deadline by marching ahead with the detailed engineering, designing and tower testing processes.  Other required compliance activities to obtain necessary statutory clearances from various authorities are being undertaken so as to facilitate the commencement of actual construction work.
