As Panchabuta had reported a few days back, according to Bloomberg Newsweek, the CEO of NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam Ltd (NVVN) Shri. A.K. Goyal has resigned and that the resignation could serve as a potential setback to the government program and the National Solar Mission itself.
It is glad to note that, according to Bloomberg Businessweek report, NTPC said earlier in an e-mailed response to questions that “The Solar Mission project “shall not get affected in any way by this development.”
According to reports in the media, State-run NTPC said its wholly-owned subsidiary NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam Ltd has appointed Anil Agarwal as its chief executive officer (CEO). This appointment has come within a couple of days after the resignation of earlier CEO.
Mr Agarwal joined NTPC as Executive Trainee in 1977 and has been associated with contracts related to power plants and also procurement of gas and coal for NTPC.
NVVN is the nodal agency for implementing the first phase of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission of the government.
With a quick response, the government has once again reaffirmed its commitment to the National Solar Mission and Panchabuta will continue to update its readers of the developments in this space.
