With the growing development and economy of the country, more and more power production is needed for which the government allows different lands to NTPC for setting up more power plants. However, many of these and belong to the tribal communities and setting up a power plant there means exploiting the living conditions of the tribal people. The NTPC has been facing severe criticism due to these issues in recent years.
