coal shortage in india: Coal Shortage: Many power plants were closed due to shortage of coal.

New Delhi
Electricity Crisis: The power crisis in India has been averted for the time being. The problem related to shortage of coal in thermal power plants has been resolved for the time being. Supply of coal to thermal power plants has started. The power plants in which the production of electricity was stopped, they have also started again.

Power plants that generate electricity from imported coal have also started functioning. The cold is beginning in the country and due to this people have reduced the running of AC, due to which the demand for electricity has also been affected.

Along with this, due to the weekend of Saturday-Sunday with the Dussehra holiday on Friday, the demand for electricity is expected to remain weak. In order to improve the power generation situation, the state has relaxed the conditions related to power supply. Coal India’s Bilaspur unit South Eastern Coalfield has started supplying coal to other plants besides power generation plants.

Supply of coal to other industries
Apart from thermal power plants, many other industries have given statements related to the problem of coal. Industries say that the government should ensure the supply of coal to them at the earliest so that their plants continue to run and their production is not affected.

According to the data of October 13, thermal power plants in the country have an average stock of 4 days. As on October 12, 142 GW of electricity production was falling in the country, which has now come down to just 137 GW after improving the coal supply situation.
