Ramagundam to be the power hub of Telangana.
Business Line reported that the coal belt town of Ramagundam in Karimnagar district is all set to become the power hub of new Telangana State with several projects coming up in the region in near future.
The industrial town already houses 2,600 MW National Thermal Power Corporation which includes 62.5 MW APGenco's Ramagundam thermal power station, 18 MW Singareni captive power project, 15.5 MW Kesoram cement factory and 10 MW NTPC solar power project.
Following the shortage of around 4,000 MW of power in Telangana and the Union Government mentioning about the establishment of a power project through NTPC in the Andhra Pradesh State Reorganisation Bill, the authorities are confident of setting up more projects in Ramagundam due to availability of huge coal reserves, abundant water supply from Godavari and requisite manpower.
