India is planning to build four mega solar farms with a capacity to produce 2GW by 2015.

The photovoltaic (PV) projects, which are expected to start construction in April 2014, will be part of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission.

One project will be built in the Rajasthan state, a second in Gujarat, and two other farms in Jammu and Kashmir state, reports citing Indian business newspaper Mint.

In January 2014, the Indian government also announced plans to build a 4GW solar project in Rajasthan.

By 2022, Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission plans to install around 20GW grid-connected solar power in the country.
