Power sector in India is undergoing a significant change that has redefined the industry outlook. Sustained economic growth continues to drive electricity demand in India. The Government of India’s focus on attaining ‘Power for all’ has accelerated capacity addition in the country. At the same time, the competitive intensity is increasing at both the market and supply sides (fuel, logistics, finances, and manpower).

Future Prospectus : Thermal Power plants are one big contributors in India. Even though the clean energy is coming fast, development of Solar and Water dams are time consuming. Cost of Coal and so does the lignite is increasing. It is expected that govt will increase the price of Electricity. Even in that case the company is well placed to run the business. Many countries are talking about Electric Vehicles and for that we need Better Electric supply. In that way, NLC India is one Better opportunity.
