information was sought," an official document said.


The power plant is being developed as a result of the MoU signed between India and Bangladesh in 2010 with a view to enhance traditional ties of friendship, through economic cooperation.


Accordingly, APJL had last year signed a MoU with Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB), to develop a 2X800 MW thermal power plant on build own operate (BOO) basis in India and supply the entire power generated to Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) through a dedicated transmission line.


The document further said the EAC has sought from the project proponent the information like data from the state irrigation department justifying the water availability and impact of proposed water drawl on the downstream users and ecology.

The panel has also sought a copy of No Objection Certificate from Ministry of Power for the export of power.
