The solar parks scheme currently has a timeline up to March 31, 2026. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) supports the states and union territories in setting up solar parks at various locations in India to create the required infrastructure for setting up solar power projects. 

The state governments identify land suitable for solar parks and make it available. The MNRE supports solar park development and the solar parks have all clearances, transmission systems, water access, road connectivity, and communication networks.
