The central government of India has sanctioned the construction of the 210 MW Tuivai Hydro Electric Project in Mizoram in July 2013. The estimated cost of the project will be Rs 1,750.6 crore . The fund would be provided under the Viability Gap Funding (There are many projects with high economic returns, but the financial returns may not be adequate for a profit-seeking investor. In such cases, the government can pitch in and meet a portion of the cost, making the project viable. This method is known as viability gap funding ). The project will be taken up in the Public Private Partnership mode. Mizoram was the first state to avail funding under the VGF and the first northeastern state to take up a mega project in PPP mode.  Mizoram government is expecting that Tuivai Hydel Project will not only enhance power supply for Mizoram but also boost the State’s economy .
