JTCL was incorporated on September 8, 2009. JTCL entered into a transmission service agreement dated December 1, 2010 and a transmission services agreement dated November 12, 2013 with Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (the “JTCL TSA”). The JTCL project was awarded to SGL1 by the Ministry of Power on January 19, 2011 for a 35-year period from the scheduled commercial operation date of the JTCL Project, on a BOOM basis.
JTCL alleviates transmission capacity bottlenecks and expands the reliability and stability of the power grid in western and northern India by providing open access to transmit power from the independent power projects in the east of India. The corridors thus created are crucial links, on the basis of which the CTU has entered long-term open-access agreements with several generation companies in the Eastern Region of India.
JTCL operates two EHV overhead transmission lines of approximately 992 ckms in the states of Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh comprising one 765 kV dual circuit line of approximately 757 ckms from Dharamjaygarh (Chhattisgarh) to Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh) and one 765 kV single circuit line of approximately 235 ckms from Jabalpur to Bina in Madhya Pradesh. The Jabalpur - Bina line of JTCL is India‘s first 765 kV transmission line developed by a private company in India. The JTCL Project was fully commissioned in September 2015.
