Business

No power plant will be closed due to short supply of coal, according to the Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Coal, Shri Sriprakash Jaiswal. Falling back on a report by the Central Electricity Authority (CEA), the Minister said that the coal stock at power plants has improved from a level of 9.29 Million Tonnes as on 31st October, 2009 to 10.65 Million Tonnes as on 30th November, 2009.
The number of critical power stations having coal stock of less than 7 days reduced from a level of 27 to 25 during the same period. It is expected that coal production and transportation are likely to improve further and, therefore, closing down of power plants due to short supply of coal is not being apprehended, he said.
