Tender documents will be available to purchase from October 14, 2017 until November 13, 2017. Last date to submit the complete tender documents is December 15, 2017. More details are available on NTPC Tender website.

In May 2017, NSPCL issued a tender for a 20 MW solar PV project in Durgapur Steel Plant Vicinity (see 20 MW NTPC Tender In West Bengal).

In a related news, NTPC has issued a DCR category tender for 15 MW PV project in Kerala (see NTPC’s DCR Tender For 15 MW).
