The decision was taken at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday, an official statement said.

As per the statement, South Eastern Coalfields Ltd (SECL) will establish a 660 MW thermal power plant in Anuppur district of Madhya Pradesh. This will be carried out through a joint venture between SECL and Madhya Pradesh Power Generating Co Ltd (MPPGCL), a state government-owned entity. The project in question is the 660 megawatt (MW) Amarkantak supercritical coal-based thermal power plant.

Similarly, Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd (MCL) plans to set up a thermal power plant with a total capacity of 2×800 MW. Mahanadi Basin Power Ltd (MBPL), a subsidiary of MCL, will undertake this project.
