• Bokang Bailing HEP-(BBHEP – 165 MW) is on river Dhauliganga (a tributary of Kali / Sarda river) in District Pithoragarh in the state of Uttrakhand with a proposed installed capacity of 165 MW. The project is approachable from Tanakpur-Khela and is located at a distance of 310Km from Tanakpur. The nearest rail head is located at Tanankpur and nearest airport is located at Pant Nagar (Udhamsingh Nagar).

    The proposal considered by NBWL &GoUK and has agreed to permit THDCIL for Survey & Investigation works as the project lies outside the protected area.

    Consultant for preparation of DPR work of BokangBailing has been awarded on JV of M/s JSC “Institute Hydro Project” Moscow, Russia (Lead Partner) and M/S Sai Engineering Foundation on 12.03.2019.

    EIA/EMP studies is underway through WAPCOS and Draft EIA/EMP Report is pending due to unavailability of approved FRL and TWL of Bokang Bailing HEP, which is pending from GoUK.

    In continuation to our earlier request letters, ‘Additional Secretary’, GoUK has again been requested vide letter dated 28.10.2021 for issuance of confirmation letter of FRL and TWL at the earliest. Response from GoUK is still awaited.

    Work of preparation of DPR (Drilling, drifting etc) at Project Bokang Bailing is hampered very badly at site since 18.06.21 due to heavy rainfall/road blocked.  Presently the work at site is suspended due to snow fall in the region/area. Draft DPR is expected to be submitted in CEA by Aug’23.
