The project has been in the works since the 1970s, but got a renewed push from the Centre and the Prime Minsiter's Office from 2015 onwards. A substantial portion of the Kutku dam was built till 1997, but it came to a halt after intense protests by local tribal communities against the impending displacement. The project will submerge 116 sq km of Palamau habitat out of a total of 1,129 sq km.

The Delhi government has asked the city power regulator to consider charging domestic rates for lawyers' chambers in courts across the national capital. The move came after multiple representations were made by lawyers in courts requesting the office of Power Minister Satyendar Jain that they be charged domestic tariff rates for electricity. "It is, therefore, requested to kindly consider the request of lawyers and take further necessary action," said Deputy Secretary (Power) Chandan Sengupta in a letter to Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) Secretary. If the move gets an approval, DERC, an autonomous body, may also come under the Delhi government's subsidy scheme as it is only for domestic power consumers and not for commercial connections. Under the Delhi government's scheme, those consuming up to 400 units get 50 per cent subsidy on their bills. The scheme benefits around 36 lakh or 90 per cent of the consumers in the national capital. Meanwhile, the DERC had held a public hearing on ...
