Based on reading of the Project Design Document dated March 2, 2010 (version 1 as available on the UNFCCC website) for the above project, having seen the order of Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission on the application of approval of the PPA of MSEDCL with the Project Proponent (PP), having seen the concurrence letter dated Dec 27, 2006 from the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) of Govt of India (GoI) under the section 8 Electricity Act of 2003, having seen the Environment Impact Assessment and also the clearance letter from the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MEF) and having monitored India’s power sector and this project over the last few years we reach the conclusion that it will not be appropriate to accept the project for CDM credits.
