Rajasthan to meet power demand amid supply disruption in Chhattisgarh

With the supply of coal from the PEKB Chhattisgarh mine reportedly disrupted due to local agitation, Rajasthan's increased demand for electricity is becoming even more difficult. The number of rakes received by the Rajasthan Vidhyut Utpadan Nigam (RVUN) has decreased by nine per day as a result of this disruption.

This shortfall accounts for roughly 40% of the total coal received for power generation. Bhaskar A Sawant, Principal Secretary (Power) and Chairman of Discoms, has reportedly stated that due to supply disruptions, coal has been allocated by the Centre under a 'bridge linkage' arrangement, but this coal must be lifted from the Mahanadi Coal Fields (Odisha).

Many issues are being encountered as a result of the limited availability of rail rakes on this long route. To solve this problem, it has been decided to bring this coal from Paradip Port (Odisha) to the west coast and from there to Rajasthan by rail route.
