Mumbai, May 3: The Nuclear Power Corp of India (NPCIL) has begun preparatory work in Maharashtra's Ratnagiri district, where there is potential to set up nuclear power plants totaling 8,000 to 10,000 MW.

The central government has given its in-principle approval for setting up nuclear power plants at the Jaitapur site in Ratnagiri after which NPCIL put up a camp office there.

In the first phase, the government has sanctioned two 1,000 MW plants, light water reactors (LWRs), in Jaitapur, which is in the coastal Konkan belt.

NPCIL officials said the corporation's chairman SK Jain was constantly reviewing the progress in Jaitapur.

"A land acquisition plan has been chalked out," said an official.
