About 65,000 MW of thermal capacity across India runs the risk of turning into bad assets; Given a capital cost of Rs 5 crore per MW, that is upwards of Rs 3,00,000 crore at risk; much of this is bank loans as these projects, typically, came up with a 80 per cent debt component

Companies that had acquired land, signed MoUs (memorandums of understanding), coal linkages, etc are now looking to sell and exit

As per an estimate, as many as 700 thermal plants across India applied for an environmental clearance between 2006 and 2010. Between them, they were looking to add 701,820 MW of capacityabout six times India's overall power capacity in 2011 and seven times the target for the 12th five-year plan (2012-17)

The M&A space in the power generation sector in India is expected to gain further traction from hereon. The authors of the view that this is the most conducive time to buy these assets for anyone looking for strategic investment in India's power story. Most of the Indian companies that entered into power sector with short term goals are seeing themselves being trapped into the sector and are surrounded by some of the unexpected development both on structural and commercial front, these companies want to exit from power business.
