No more deadline extensions to six power projects

Clearing three preferred energy projects for implementation, the government on Thursday put on hold deadline extensions to about six power projects based on indigenous fuels under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The decision was taken at a meeting of the Private Power and Infrastructure Board (PPIB) on the premise that the deadline extensions would be considered after the finalisation of the National Electricity Plan and New Energy Policy to determine if these projects fit in the demand scenario.
