The deadline—earlier due on May 5—is now revised to May 19, 2021.
The proposed capacity—to be developed in turnkey mode—shall come up in the Cuddalore and Tiruvannamalai districts of Tamil Nadu.
The total capacity of 50 MW will be awarded to a single successful bidder selected through a reverse auction on the cumulative capacity.
The work scope includes complete transfer of ownership/lease of encumbrance-free land in favor of SECI, design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing and commissioning of the plant. The contractor shall also be responsible for the comprehensive operation and maintenance of the plant for ten years.
To be eligible, the bidder should be a body incorporated in India under the Companies Act, 2013.

The said company is to be formed within 30 days from the notification of the award.
