Reliance Natural Resources merged with Reliance Power in 2010, shortly after its initial public offering.[2] As of March 2018, Reliance Power has 50 subsidiaries. In Fortune India 500 list of 2017, R-Power was ranked as the 124th largest corporation in India with 9th rank in 'Power sector' category.

They include six coal-fired projects (14,620 MW) to be fuelled by reserves from captive mines and supplies from India and abroad, two gas-fired projects (10,280 MW) to be fuelled primarily by reserves from the Krishna Godavari basin (the "KG Basin") off the east coast of India, and four hydroelectric projects (3,300 MW), three of them in Arunachal Pradesh and one in Uttarakhand.

Power generation projects[edit]

Coal based Thermal power projects[edit]

Gas based Thermal power projects[edit]

  • Samalkot Power Project: 2,400 MW (3 x 800 MW) gas-fired thermal power project at Samalkot in East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh.

    Reliance Electric Company

    This partially implemented project is at a standstill for reasons of financial stress and lack of gas supply. Construction is not complete and whatever capacity has been installed is not being used.

    In 2018, Reliance power signed an agreement with the government of Bangladesh to "relocate" (or divert?) one unit from Samalkot to that country.[6]

Shelved thermal power projects[edit]

  • Tilaiya Ultra Mega Power Project – 4,000 MW at Tilaiya in Jharkhand - Shelved. Reliance Power exited this project in 2015, citing delays in land acquisition.

    Three years later, in May 2018, it sold all remaining interests in the project to Jharkhand State Power Development Corporation for a sum of Rs. 112 crores.

  • Krishnapatnam Ultra Mega Power Project at Krishnapatnam in Nellore district, Andhra Pradesh - 3,960 MW (6×660 MW) - shelved.

    Shortly after the project was cleared in 2011, Indonesia changed its coal export policy and the project became unviable. Nevertheless, Reliance took possession of the land. In 2016, Reliance began the process of abandoning the project by seeking an exit deal with the Andhra Pradesh government.

    There were issues of money and bank guarantees, and the matter went into litigation. In January 2019, the Delhi High Court upheld invocation of bank guarantees (300 crores) by the government.

    The project stands shelved.

  • Chitrangi Power Project: 3,960 MW (6 x 660 MW) - This coal-based project in Chitrangi in Singhauli district of Madhya Pradesh was canceled and shelved even before the agreement was signed.

    In 2011, Reliance Power won the tendering process by bidding aggressively a price of only 3.70/unit of electricity. However, it made no movement for several years.

    Resultantly, environment clearance lapsed in 2016 and was not extended.

    In March 2018, the Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation, which was the customer for the project, canceled the contract and seized the bank guarantees.[7]

Order to Shanghai Electric[edit]

Anil Dhirubhai Ambani placed a single order for $8.3 billion with Shanghai Electric Group Company (SEC) for buying 36 coal-fired thermal power generation units, spare parts, and related services over a 10-year period.

This took the total deal size between Reliance Power and the Chinese power equipment maker over the past couple of years to $10 billion, making it the largest contract between a private Indian company and a government-owned Chinese firm.


While Reliance Power has also given a $2.2 billion deal to US-based General Electric, the agreement signed with SEC is on a different plane. The Chinese company will supply boiler, turbine and generator packages for up to 30,000 MW capacity of coal-based power at six plants, including the 4000 MW ultra mega power project in Krishnapatnam, the 3960 MW Project in Chitrangi and the 4000 MW Power Project in Tilaiya.

Loans from Exim bank[edit]

Reliance Power Ltd. signed an agreement with the US Export-Import Bank in 2010 for a $5 billion loan to finance power projects.

The loan will finance 900 megawatts of renewable technologies such as solar and wind energy,[8] as well as up to 8000 MW of gas-based power generation technology, the Indian company said in a statement. This $5 billion agreement is in addition to the $917 million already approved by the Ex-Im Bank for Reliance Power's coal-fired power plant at Sasan in central India.

The agreement will allow Reliance Power access products and services at competitive rates and help create manufacturing and services jobs in the US. The loan will also enable quicker access to the bank's long-term dollar loans. Reliance Power signed a pact with the US's General Electric Co. (GE) worth INR100 billion ($2.2 billion) to implement a 2400 MW power plant.

The plant will be located in the southern Indian town of Samalkot and the pact was signed during the visit of President Barack Obama.[9]

Initial public offering and controversies[edit]

In 2007, Reliance Power issued a red herring stating an intention to go public with an IPO. The proposed IPO was to fund the development of its six power projects across the country whose completion dates are scheduled from December 2009 to March 2014.[10] The Securities and Exchange Board of India, the organisation which regulates activity in the Indianstock market, placed some restrictions based on a complaint about the formulation of the IPO.[11] The complaint also resulted in a public interest litigation being filed against the company.

However, the Supreme Court of India passed a ruling that the IPO would go ahead even if any order is passed by any Indian court against the venture.[12]

The IPO opened on 15 January 2008 and attracted $27.5 billion of bids on the first day, equivalent to 10.5 times the stock on offer, thereby creating India's IPO record.

The upper cut off price for the bid was Rs.

Company Promoters:

450[13] A media report pointed out that, if the company’s stock price were to cross Rs. 650–700, Anil Ambani would go past L. N. Mittal to become the richest Indian.[14] "It is a reflection of world community in the future of India...

Investors seem to be confident in the future of Indian economy," Indian Finance Minister, P. Chidambaram told the media about the IPO.[15]

Reliance Power debuted on the stock markets on 11 February 2008. However, the markets were still reeling after the January 2008 stock market volatility, and concerns over speculation that the issue was overpriced sent the stock plummeting soon after its listing.

Forex trading systems and strategies

At the end of the first day, the stock traded at a value that was 17 percent lower than its issue price of Rs. 450.[16] Investors who were betting on the stock reaching 1.5 or even twice its issue price lost a fortune in the process. On 25 February, in an effort to mitigate investor losses, Reliance Power decided to issue 3 bonus shares for every 5 shares held.[17]

Carbon credits[edit]

On 2 February 2011 United Nations registered Reliance Power's Sasan Power Plant to be eligible for earning carbon credits followed by Krishnapatanm Ultra Mega Power Project and Tilaiya Ultra Mega Power Projects.

United Nations issues carbon credits to companies which employ advanced technologies in reducing carbon emission. These carbon credits can then be sold to those companies that are emitting more than their statutory emission
