MNRE clarifies no extension of commissioning date for RE projects beyond six months  

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has clarified that the extension provided in the date of commissioning for renewable energy projects should not be more than six months, including the five-month blanket extension given earlier. The MNRE had issued a notification requesting the implementing agencies to consider the lockdown as a “force majeure” event. The ministry has clarified that if the implementing agencies feel the requirement of granting an extension beyond six months, they should provide justification and supporting documents to the ministry.
