Nandipur plant starts power generation; risks ignored
"Though the plant managers were reluctant to run the plant because of inherent risks for prolonged operation on diesel instead of furnace oil, the ministry was determined; even at the risk of additional wear and tear of the plant and other potential damage, the official added."
"Even the humongous cost (more than Rs40 per unit, against the sale price of Rs14.70) that the operation would cost failed to become a deterrent.
The government would now be contributing more than Rs25 per unit from taxpayers’ money to keep the plant running. But it is still determined to do so even at technical and financial risks, he said."
