Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) is to build the Pragati II 750 MW gas fired power project in west Delhi at a cost of 16bn rupees ($260m).
 
Giving approval to the project, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said: "The plant will supply uninterrupted power to Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport, Dwarka and nearby localities and is integral to our plan of making the capital a power surplus state".
