The transmission line is part of India- Bangladesh Power Interconnection Project launched with an aim to facilitate the exchange of electricity between the two countries- India and Bangladesh.
The APL entails two 800MW- 800 MW plants. Now, the first plant of 800 MW plant has started production for commercial supply of electricity.
As per the agreement between India and Bangladesh, the APL has started supplying 748 ME of power to the Bangladesh Power Development Board with effect from April 6, 2023.
