The Uttar Pradesh cabinet has the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for setting up seven new thermal power plants in the State. These projects, entailing an investment of Rs 25,000 crore will generate an additional 4,500 MW of power.

Under the arrangement, the state would provide land and water for setting up and running the plant.

Five of the proposed plants are to be set up by Bajaj Hindusthan Ltd., the country's leading sugar producer. The company has planned foray into thermal energy sector and plans to set up power plants at Pilibhit, Lakhimpur-Kheri, Shahjahanpur, Gonda and Utraula. Lanco Infratech has received the nod to set up a 1,320 MW thermal power station at Fatehpur.
