Two units of Deen Bandhu Chhotu Ram Thermal Power Plant at Yamuna Nagar have started generation of a total of 600 MW of electricity.
He said that the first unit of the 1,200 MW Rajah Gandhi Thermal Project in Hisar would start electricity generation by December 2009 while the its second unit would be operational by March 2010.
