NER was incorporated on April 21, 2015. NER entered into a TSA on December 27, 2016. The NER project was awarded by the Ministry of Power on February 22, 2017 for a 35-year period from the scheduled commercial operation date of the NER project, on a BOOM basis. The NER project is located in the state of Tripura, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. We believe that the (i) NER project would strengthen the interconnection between the states of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh and provide an additional source of power to Itanagar, and (ii) also provide a strong interconnection between the northern and southern part of the north east region.
