SECI is designated as the nodal agency for implementation of MNRE schemes for developing grid connected solar power capacity through VGF mode in the country. Under the Batch-III of Phase-II JNNSM, it is envisaged to add further a total solar PV capacity of 2000 MW.
The Solar Projects of 2000 MW Capacity under the State Specific VGF Scheme will be set up in the Solar Parks of various states, to be developed through coordinated efforts of Central and State Agencies. As implementation of solar parks have begun recently, it could be possible that Solar Parks in some of the States do not become available soon. For such States, Solar Projects would be allowed to be located outside solar parks with land being provided either by the State Government, or arranged by the Solar Power Developers (SPDs).
Out of the total capacity of 2000 MW, a capacity of 250 MW will be earmarked for bidding with Domestic Content Requirement (DCR)
