Total admitted claims from Lanco Amarkantak’s financial creditors stood at 14,631.71 core rupees at the end of 31 January 2024.

Lanco Amarkantak owns and operates a 2x300-megawatt (600-MW) thermal power plant (Phase-I) at Pathadi village in Korba district of Chhattisgarh, according to the statement. The Phase-I capacity is tied up with Haryana and Madhya Pradesh power distribution companies under the long-term power purchase agreements, it said.

The company, whose financial creditors include Power Finance Corp., REC Ltd., IDBI Bank, is also setting up a 2x660-MW (1,320-MW) expansion capacity under Phase-II.
