Local sourcing

According to consistent press report, the Indian government decided to bar imports of certain equipment used in electricity generation on 20 January 2010. Due to a decision by the empowered group of ministers, ultra mega power projects (UMPP) are no longer allowed to source equipment from abroad, but are required to tender domestically.
 
In a related move, the Central Electrical Authority has asked all state and central utilities to include an "indigenous manufacturing clause" into its equipment contracts. Consistent with the decision of the empowered group of ministers, public utilities are asked to source their equipment from domestic providers.
