The proceeds will be used for setting up coal-fired stations using ultra super-critical technology or coal-fired stations having emissions less than 750 gram of CO2/kWh.

The amount will also be used for installing FGD (flue-gas desulphurisation) -- sulphur dioxide-reducing technology -- in existing operating power plants which are not ultra super critical, and at non-coal fired stations.

"It will also be used for repayment of rupee loans availed domestically for capital expenditure of aforementioned projects, to the extent, the same is in compliance with end-use or other requirements stipulated under applicable law," NTPC said.
