Govt gives nod to mega solar project in Leh and Kargil

The Union government has given nod to a Rs 50,000-crore grid-connected solar photo-voltaic project spread across Leh and Kargil districts.

This being said to be the single biggest investment proposal in the region since Ladakh was designated as a Union Territory by the Centre recently.

Union Power Minister R K Singh was quoted as saying by The Indian Express that the Centre has finalised the sites for the solar project, alongside the implementation details of a crucial transmission link to ensure the viability of the project.

It added that Pang, about 117 km from Leh, has been finalised as the revised site for a major chunk of the 7,500 MW solar project after an earlier proposed site ran foul of environmental norms.
