Inter-Ministerial sub-Group led by Ministry of Coal monitoring coal stock situation twice a week in country

An inter-Ministerial sub-Group led by the Ministry of Coal has been monitoring the coal stock situation twice a week in the country.

In order to manage the coal stock and ensure equitable distribution of coal, the Power Ministry has constituted a Core Management Team (CMT) to ensure daily monitoring.

It is closely monitoring and managing the coal stocks on a daily basis and ensuring follow up actions with Coal India limited (CIL) and  Railways to improve the coal supply to power plants. Yesterday, CMT reviewed the status.

The Ministry said, on 7th of this month, total dispatch of coal by CIL touched 1.501 metric ton thereby reducing the gap between consumption and actual supply.

The Ministry of Coal and CIL have assured that they are making best efforts to increase dispatch to the power sector to 1.6 metric ton per day in the next three days and thereafter try to touch 1.7 metric ton per day.

It is likely to help in gradual build up of coal stocks at the power plant in near future. The coal supply as well as consequent power situation is likely to improve.

In a statement Power Ministry said unprecedented increase in demand of electricity due to revival of economy, heavy rains in coal mine areas last month, increase in prices of imported coal to unprecedented high level and non-building of adequate coal stocks before the onset of Monsoon are reasons for the depletion of coal stocks at the power plant.

It said there are also legacy issues of heavy dues of coal companies from certain states including Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, UP, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

The Ministry added that it has issued guidelines for operationalizing optimum utilization of generating stations as per the requirements in the Electricity Grid.
