India hydro developer National Hydroelectric Power Corporation of India, Jammu & Kashmir State Power Development Corporation and PTC India have incorporated a joint venture company to develop three hydropower projects with a combined capacity of 2,120 MW in Jammu and Kashmir.

The new entity, Chenab Valley Power Projects Pvt Ltd , was incorporated on June 13., wire services reported.

In December last year, Jammu & Kashmir State Power Development Corp, NHPC and PTC India had inked a promoter's agreement for setting up the new entity.
