Reliance Power is developing a 4,000 MW project at Sasan and was allotted three captive coal blocks to fuel the project, which was bid for at a fixed rate to supply power.

Last month, the CAG said Reliance Power gained Rs 29,000 crore in undue benefit from a government decision, allowing the power producer to use surplus coal from its captive block for another project it was not meant for.
