Located in Burdwan district of West Bengal, DTPS was set up in the sixties of last century with two 75 MW units and one 140 MW unit in the first stage. Another 210 MW unit was added to the plant in the early eighties to augment supplies to the growing industrial demand. The first 2 units of the Station had to be de-commissioned after a fire accident in 1985.
