Tata Power Belagavi plant shuts down- being dismantled

This plant was a diesel generator based plant and had a 12 year contract with the Karnataka sate govt and had 37 employees.
As per the annual report of Tata Power the production was stopped on 28 February 2013. The Govt. did not extend the power agreement as the cost of power from Tata power very high than the price charged to the consumer and hence buying power from the Plant was not viable.
