Role of the Ministry of Power
The Ministry of Power is playing a crucial role for the development of the UMPPs by coordinating between various concerned Ministries/Agencies of the Central Government, and with various State Governments/Agencies.

Some of the key areas requiring the Ministry of Power’s intervention include –

Coordination with Central Ministries/Agencies for ensuring:

o Coal block allotment/coal linkage
o Environment/forest clearances
o Water linkage

Required support from State Governments and their agencies.

Working out allocation of power to different States from UMPPs in consultation with the States.

Facilitating PPA and proper payment security mechanism with State Governments/State Utilities.

Monitoring the progress of Shell companies with respect to predetermined timelines.

Role of States
States hosting the UMPPs and the other power procuring States are playing a pro-active role. In particular, some of the activities in which the concerned States play a decisive role include implementation of the Rehabilitation & Resettlement Plan, provide authorization to the PFC/SPV to carry out the bidding process on behalf of the distribution utilities, participate through its representatives in various committees set up for undertaking the competitive bidding process, facilitate signing of the Power Purchase Agreement, ensure proper payment security mechanism with the distribution utilities, and so on.
