India to supply another 500MW power to Bangladesh


PV Desk : India will supply another 500MW power to Bangladesh through the Bheramara- Bherampur inter-connection by July next year, High Commissioner Harsh Vardhan Shringla has said.
He said discussions are underway to finalise the 765 KV power transmission line from Assam to the eastern part of India through Bangladesh (Bornagar-Parbatipur-Katihar) through which a portion of the power will be supplied to Bangladesh.
“This line would be extremely useful as it would serve to bring in excess hydropower, not only from the North Eastern part of India but more importantly from Bhutan and the sub-region.”
The Indian envoy was speaking at the inauguration of the 19th Power Bangladesh and Allied Expos (Solar Bangladesh, Real Estate Expo, Construction Expo, Water Bangladesh, and Safety & Security Expo) on Thursday at the International Convention City at Dhaka’s Bashundhara.
