NHPC Ltd. has extended the deadline for bids to construct civil works of the powerhouse complex of the 2,000-MW Subansiri Lower hydroelectric project on the Subansiri River in India's Arunachal Pradesh State. Bids now are due for October 21.
NHPC previously called for bids by July 31.

Also proposed in Arunachal Pradesh are the 1,800-MW Subansiri Upper and 1,600-MW Subansiri Middle projects.
