We will be able to support the Government of India to achieve its target of a 50 percent share of energy from non-fossil fuels by 2030 through this kind of cooperation.

"Also, this partnership will encourage green investment and generate both direct and indirect employment opportunities.”

In the presence of CMD, IREDA Pradip Kumar Das and CMD, SJVN Nand Lal Sharma, DGM (IREDA) Pradipta Kumar Roy and CEO (SGEL) S. L. Sharma signed the loan agreement at the corporate office of IREDA.
