The other factors favoring the installation of the thermal power station were low initial cost and comparatively less gestation period as compared to hydro electric generating stations. The foundation stone of G.N.D.T.P. at bathinda was laid on 19th November 1969, the auspicious occasion of 500th birth anniversary of great Guru Nanak Dev Ji.The historic town of bathinda was selected for this first and prestigious thermal project of the state due to its good railway connections for fast transportations of coal, availability of canal water and proximity to load center.The total installed capacity of the power station 440MW with four units of 110MW each. The first unit of the plant was commissioned in September, 1974. Subsequently second, third and fourth units started generation in September 1975, March 1978, January 1979 respectively.
