Economic Times reported that Jammu and Kashmir Governor-led administration terminated the contracts of the construction of 48 megawatt Lower Kalnai hydro-electric power project in Doda district due to poor progress of work. The project was awarded on EPC basis in September 2013 to Coastal Projects Pro Limited and was scheduled to be completed in September, 2017.

An official spokesman said that "The State Administrative Council which met here under the chairmanship of Governor Satya Pal Malik accorded sanction to the termination of the EPC (Engineering Procurement Construction) and PMC (Project Management Consultancy) contracts for the 48 MW Lower Kalnai HEP, updation of the DPR (detailed project report) and re-tendering of the balance works of the Project under EPC mode.”

He said due to poor progress work and listing of coastal projects in the insolvency list of the RBI, the termination of the contract and encashment of performance bank guarantees (PBGs) was recommended.

He added that the PMC contract of the project was awarded to ICCS-Rodic Consultants Consortium which was to be completed within 48 months. In view of poor progress of the main EPC contract, the PMC was asked to minimize its manpower deployment. Subsequently, the PMC demobilized its staff, handed over the records and formally closed services in August 2018.
