NPCIL plans a capex of Rs 180 billion in 2021-22

Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) has planned a capex of Rs 180 billion on ongoing projects for the financial year ending March 2022. Around 30 per cent of the capex will be through internal accruals and central government budgetary support, whereas 70 per cent of it will be through long-term borrowings. Currently, the major ongoing projects are two 1,000 MW units (Units 3 and 4) at Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu, and four 700 MW units at the Rajasthan Atomic Power Station (Units 7 and 8) and the Kakrapar Atomic Power Station (KAPS) (Units 3 and 4), along with small investments in the Gorakhpur Haryana Anu Vidyut Pariyojana (2×700 MW). The first pouring of concrete for the construction of two more 1,000 MW units (Units 5 and 6) at Kudankulam is also expected to take place this year. The 700 MW unit of KAPS is expected to begin operations in September 2021.
