‘Land acquisition remains a major issue for solar projects’

Large-scale solar power projects continue to face land acquisition challenges and other bureaucratic hurdles even as the government is looking to attract investments in this sector.

The industry is asking for faster decision-making for making land available and simplifying government approvals to attract investments in power projects.

Recently, the Centre approved the setting up of Project Development Cells (PDCs) which will be headed by Amitesh Kumar Sinha, Joint Secretary, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

The primary objective of setting up PDCs is to quicken the process of investment and project development in the country in order to boost the economy and meet India’s increasing power requirements.
