In September 2020, NTPC awarded a contract worth Rs31.43bn ($430m), pertaining to the Talaipalli coal mine in Chhattisgarh, to Tamil Nadu-based Thriveni Earthmovers.

This contract called for the development and operations of the coal mine.

Earlier, BGR Mining & Infra was responsible for the development of the Talaipalli mine and other NTPC coal mines in Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh.

However, the contracts were terminated by NTPC over corruption charges against the mining contractor’s senior officials, stated PTI.
