The Bangladesh-India Friendship Power Plant (PP) at Rampal in Bagerhat, a mega project of Tk 160 billion, will start electricity production by October 31, a top official has said. 


“We have already completed financial progress by 78 percent and physical progress of 83 per cent.

A workforce of 6250 people including 1625 experts are presently deployed at the site to put final touches to the unit-1 of the power plant that faced delays to commission several times due to Covid-19 outbreak.
