This is in continuation to the orders L&T had received earlier from NTPC for setting up FGD systems.

Considering the deadline endorsed by the apex court, other power plants will have to hasten the process of FGD award to meet the scheduled time frame. L&T will continue to play a significant role in this market of SOx and NOx reduction."

Ministry of Power, Government of India, has set December 2022 as the deadline for existing thermal power plants to comply with revised emission norms.
