Drilling operation suspended for time being: NTPC on relief work in Chamoli

While addressing a joint press conference in Chamoli on February 11, the Director of Technical Projects in National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Limited, Ujjwal Bhattacharya said, "We had reached distance of 6 m and then realised that water and muck is coming there. Had we continued, there would have been issues as rocks are unstable, excavator would have fallen. So we have suspended drilling operation for time being."
