RE: Article on "license management procedure"

Dear Narayan

I also would like to know why did people in GoN issued the license as such. Either, they did so out of ignorance of the site being one of the rarest one in the world and that its full potential is 4,180 MW. Or they simply did so in exchange for “a few silvers”
BTW, the reference here is not to Karnali Chisapani, the capacity of which is 10,800 MW. The project being referred to is known as Upper Karnali, more than 100 km north of Karnali Chisapani site.

The important issue is that building upper Karnali as a run of the rive type is mutually exclusive with its potential as a reservoir project with 4,180 MW. Meaning if the site is developed as a run of the river type with installed capacity of 900 MW, then Nepal will deprived of the opportunity to implement it to its full potential.

With best regards,

Dear Ratna Sansar,

I read your article. After going through it I am interested to know why Nepal Government awarded survey licensing for

300MW instead of 4180MW in Karnali- Chisapani? How then the Indian firm is preparing DPR of 900MW? Whether after going for 900MW, there would be no chance to construct reservoir type project?
Thanks and regard,

narayan silwal
