Vivek Chhotrai started this petition to Government of Odisha and

One of the major powerplant of odisha NTPC talcher is now going to shut down it's operation from march leaving thousands of it's employees and contractual workers in despair and jobless.

It is going to create a lot of drastic situation in the locality affecting thousands of families  who directly and  indirectly depends on it for their livelihood and the saddest part is no state media is covering it and putting lives at stake

The CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board) had issued an ultimatum to the old power plants to take expedient steps to upgrade and meet the emission norms including solid particulate matter (SPM), sulphur and nitrogen content, otherwise, they would be liable to be closed from December 31 this year. 

Since the cost of meeting the norms comes to Rs 50 lakh per MW, it would have cost TTPS a whopping Rs 23,000 crore to fix the deficiencies. Hence, it decided to replace its existing plant with two new ones of 660 MW each in 2018. But the state government proved to be a stumbling block.

Even as the contract for the Rs 9,000 crore project was awarded the same year, the STATE GOVERNMENT delayed the project clearance till February this year. It is now too late for TTPS to execute the project and NTPC’s lack of interest in the same has only made matters worse

We all request the government of odisha and NTPC to kindly look into the matter as soon as possible and safeguard those family's livelihood
