May 15, 2014 UMPP Project in Bihar The ministry is considering a site in Bihar for setting up a 4,000 MW ultra mega power project (UMPP). The power ministry has also approached coal ministry for allocation of a nearest coal block for the mega project. Land has been identified and water source is also in place. If this site is finalised, this would be the first load centre project as coal will be made available from a nearby coal block through road or railways. Power Finance Corporation is the nodal agency for UMPPs.
