It is sad but true that inspite of having Geothermal provide right to free safe sustainable water and Energy electrical potential to the tune of 10000 MW mainly for all. Agneyodgara Indnor is taken up as Joint venture confined along the tectonic zones, India still does not figure between India and Nordic counties to study and document on the geothermal map of world…...
