NTPC was incorporated on November 7, 1975 under the Companies Act as a private limited company under the name National Thermal Power Corporation Private Limited, and the word 'Private' was deleted on September30, 1976 consequent upon the notification issued by the Government of India exempting government companies from the use of word 'private' in their name. On September 30 1985, NTPC Company was converted from a private limited company into a public limited company. Subsequently, the name of NTPC was changed to its present name NTPC Limited and, a fresh certificate of incorporation was issued on
October 28, 2005. The name of NTPC was changed to reflect the
diversification of their business operations beyond thermal power
generation to include among others, generation of power from
hydro, nuclear and renewable energy sources and undertaking
coal mining and oil exploration activities.
