Himachal Pradesh (HP) cabinet has decided to amend the Hydropower Policy 2006 in respect to transfer of shares by Himachal is to non-Himachalis. So that now Himachalis can sell or transfer 49% equity shares to non-Himachalis at any stage after allotment of projects upto 2 MW capacity and full disinvestment after two years of commissioning of the projects.
It is noted in case of bonafide Himachalis to whom projects up to 2 MW to 5 MW capacity had been allotted, could sell or transfer 51% share to non-Himachali people at any stage after allotment of projects and full disinvestment after two years of commissioning of the project.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. Name the state, which has decided to amend the Hydropower Policy 2006?
2. Who is the chief minister of Himachal Pradesh?
