States Owing Large Unsettled Due Amounts Of Coal: Government Of India

Latest reports have been coming in from Government of India which has given latest information regarding coal supply in the country.

As per reports Government to ramp up per day coal production from 1.94 million tonnes to 2 million tonnes per day in next 5 days.

According to sources from Government of India no supply of coal was ever stopped to any State despite huge dues.

Centre is fulfilling all the demands required by the States. Coal stocks have started increasing in the last four days. 

The situation will be normal within month. There is no shortage in daily power and coal supply as per Government sources.

Coal Ministry has been writing to States to pick up stocks from Coal India since Jan but received no response. 

Coal India can stock only upto a limit as overstocking can cause coal fire. Jharkhand, Rajasthan& WB have their coal mines but there was little or no mining.

Prolong monsoon, increase in foreign coal prices also led to coal shortage. When international coal prices were low, States and electricity companies were buying it from abroad. 

Now when its prices are high, they are looking for domestic coal according to Government sources.

States are not mining enough and are not picking up stocks from Coal India despite reminders, also contributed to the current situation. States like Delhi and Punjab had shut main coal plants.

States have to pay nearly Rs 20,000 crores as dues to Coal India as per Government sources.
