Administrative and statutory clearances for these projects have been obtained, it added.

"KKNPP units 3 and 4 are (2x1000MW) proposed for launch in late 2015/early 2016. Government has already accorded administrative and financial sanction for the project and statutory clearances have been obtained. The site has been made ready for construction.

"The units... are scheduled for commissioning in 2020-21," Union Minister of State for Department of Atomic Energy, Jitendra Singh, said in a written reply to a query in Lok Sabha.

Replying to another question, Singh said that the Environmental Impact Assessment report for the proposed nuclear power plant at Chhaya Mithi Virdhi in Gujarat has found that setting up the plant at the site would not adversely affect the environment.

The plant at Chhaya Mithi Virdhi is to come up with US collaboration while Russia is extending help for the KKNPP project in Tamil Nadu.
