"We have signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) worth Rs 50,000 crore with Adani Group for setting up of thermal power plant and fertiliser manufacturing unit," Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das told reporters here on the sidelines of 'Make in India Week' here.
"We have also signed a Rs 2,000 crore pact with the Vedanta as well as received 11 letters of intent worth Rs 10,000 crore from companies in sectors like chemicals, IT, textiles and constructions," Das said.
The state signed an agreement worth Rs 15,000 crore with the Gautam Adani-led group to set up a thermal power plant with a total capacity of 1,600 mega watt energy that will be supplied to Bangladesh Grid.
The rest Rs 35,000 crore will be invested for setting up a unit that will produce coal-based methane fertiliser. Das said that Jharkhand, with 40 per cent mineral base of the country, was the only state that had both coal and iron ore deposits.
