Balco's power plant in Korba is likely to be delayed

1200-Mw power plant operation of Vedanta-controlled Bharat Aluminium Company Limited ( Balco) in Korba is likely to be delayed as the Chhattisgarh government has terminated the factory licence.

The proposed power plant of Balco located in Korba—about 250 km from here—had been in the thick of controversy. The chimney disaster in the plant in September 2009 claimed 41 lives that put the entire plant under the scanner of the authorities.
