India’s Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla said on 27 March that New Delhi would be involved in the development of the transmission lines for the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant in Bangladesh as part of its credit line for the country.

"A significant part of our third line of credit will go to civil nuclear cooperation. Transmission lines of Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant will be developed by Indian companies under the line of credit. The value of these transmission lines will be more than $ 1 billion," Shringla said at a briefing following talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bangladeshi counterpart, Sheikh Hasina.
