total number of UMPPs envisaged in 2005.
UMPPs awarded to date: 3 have been awarded to Reliance Power and 1 to Tata Power
Sasan UMPP in Madhya Pradesh: Reliance Power was awarded because it bid an extremely low Rs. 1.19 per unit. It now wants to walk away citing the de-allocation of the Chhatrasal coal block, which was linked to the project.
Mundra UMPP in Gujarat: Operated by Tata Power, it is based on imported coal and is in financial trouble for selling power at Rs 2.26 a unit.
Krishnapatnam UMPP in Andhra Pradesh: Reliance Power has stopped work on this project and expressed its inability to supply power at the low price it had bid during the auction.
Tilaiya UMPP in Jharkhand: Reliance Power pulled out of this project because of the slow pace of land acquisition by the Jharkhand government.
