Gurgaon’s chronic power woes could be a thing of the past in a little more than a year from now. A Rs 1,000 crore-plus transmission project is under way to raise electricity supply to the millennium city and its surrounding areas, home to scores of multinationals, call centers and manufacturing units, by 2,000-3,000 MW. “This project is quite challenging as it passes through established human settlements. We are confident of delivering it ahead of schedule, as we have been doing on our other projects,” Sterlite Power CEO Pratik Agarwal told TOI.
