Singrauli Super Thermal Power Plant is located at Shaktinagar in Sonebhadra district in Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.[1] The power plant is the first power plant of NTPC.[2][3] It sources coal from Jayant and Bina mines and water from Rihand Reservoir. The states benefitting from this power plant are Uttar Pradesh, Uttranchal, Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh and the Union Territories of Delhi and Chandigarh. An investment worth 11,907 million (US$170 million) has already been cleared. It even gets international assistance from IDA.[4][5]
