CIL exceeds supply commitment to electricity plants

01 Jun 2022

Coal India (CIL), to minimise the shortage of dry fuel for thermal electricity generating plants, is supplying more coal than its commitment, pushing the non-power sector to brace for more challenging days. With several states facing an unusual power outage, CIL is forcing more fuel into power plants than its commitment of 1.65 mn tonne per day. As of last month, a total of 85 thermal power plants dependent on domestic coal and 11 factories dependent on imported coal have critical stock levels.
