Demand of Bihar has touched 3717MW under unrestricted condition in FY 2016-17 and may go up to 8774MW by 2018-19 due to segregation of agricultural feeders. The demand is expected to reach about 11000MW by the end of 13th plan.

Accordingly, detailed load flow studies were carried out to evolve transmission system requirement for the end of 13th plan period i.e. 2021-22 considering load demand of Bihar as 11000MW. The studies, inter alia, recommended establishment of two 400/220/132kV sub-stations in North Bihar at Sitamarhi and Saharsa and one 400/220/132kV sub-station in South Bihar at Chandauti (Gaya) along with augmentation of 400/132kV Motihari S/s of Essel Infra by 315MVA in the ISTS network.
