Indian High Commissioner to Dhaka Vikram K Doraiswamy has said India considers Rampal power plant as a symbol of friendship between the two countries.
"The project is seen as a friendship project; not a commercial project. All concerned people are working hard to complete the work expeditiously by giving priority to this project," Vikram said.
The Indian High Commissioner said this recently after visiting the Bangladesh-India Friendship Power Company Limited (BIFPCL), also known as Rampal power plant.
During the visit, Vikram K Doraiswamy said, "Rampal Power Plant construction will be completed in the Mujib year and we are expecting to produce electricity from the plant from December 2021."
The Indian High Commissioner further said that the adverse effects of the coronavirus pandemic need to be overcome.
