Earlier this week the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) released the list of bidders eligible for financial bid opening. SECI had earlier released a list of bidders who had submitted a bid but had warned that not all bidders would be eligible for opening of financial bids. With the financial bid being opened on 21st February 2014, SECI released a final list of eligible bidders which saw some developers being excluded.
The final list released by SECI saw the exclusion of 6 projects to be executed by 5 developers totalling 90 MW.

Two projects have been excluded in the DCR category and four in the open category. In terms of capacity, 50 MW has been excluded under the DCR cateogry and 40 MW under the open category.
