Ninth Plan will fall 600 MW short

The Ninth (economic five-year) Plan target of 1000 MW of wind capacity in India will fall short of its goal by around 600 MW unless current national policies governing private participation in the sector and taxation regulations are changed, according to a study by PSG Science and Technology Entrepreneurial Park. India needs 240,000 MW of new power generation capacity by 2012, requiring annual additions of 10,000-15,000 MW. Power generation from non-conventional energy resources thus is said to have great significance in India.
