The signing ceremony was attended by key representatives, including General Manager of IREDA, Dr. R. C. Sharma; Chief Regional Manager of IOB, Shri Anil Kumar; Chairman & Managing Director of IREDA, Shri Pradip Kumar Das; MD & CEO of IOB, Shri Ajay Kumar Srivastava; and Director (Finance) of IREDA, Dr. Bijay Kumar Mohanty.

Shri Pradip Kumar Das, CMD of IREDA, emphasized the strategic significance of this partnership, stating, “This strategic partnership between IREDA and Indian Overseas Bank marks a significant step in our commitment to accelerate the growth of renewable energy in the country.” He highlighted the collaboration’s goal to provide robust financial support to a diverse range of Renewable Energy projects, aligning with the national target of achieving a 500 GW Non-Fossil-based electricity generation capacity by 2030, as announced during COP26.

This collaboration follows IREDA’s successful partnerships with other leading financial institutions, including Bank of Baroda, Bank of India, Union Bank of India, India Infrastructure Finance Company Limited, and Bank of Maharashtra. These collective efforts underline IREDA’s commitment to funding large-scale renewable energy projects and fostering sustainability and environmental awareness in line with national objectives.
