Hi Raj,

Thank you for asking

The amount of ATP produced during the light phase of photosynthesis are just sufficient to carry out dark phase of photosynthesis. They are just self sufficient and their main aim in not ATP production but CO2 fixation to produce carbohydrate.

Hope I answered your question.

Chloroplast uses it`s atp in it`s own use whearas mitochondria provide it for use of cell so we consider mitochondria as power house of cell.

the amount of atp produced by chloroplast is meant to carry the photosynthetic reactions and is less in quantity as compared to what is produced by mitochondria.chloroplast is present only in plant cells and mitichondria is present in both plant cells and animal cells, therefore to generalize the fact we say that mitichondria is the power house of the cell.
