In a tweet, the Minister has said that cumulative coal supplies including that from Coal India Ltd has recorded more than 2 million tonnes yesterday.
Minister Joshi has also stated that coal dispatch to power plants will be further increased to ensure sufficient stock with power plants.
Recently, the Ministry of Coal reassured that ample coal is available in the country to meet the demand of power plants. Any fear of disruption in power supply is entirely misplaced, said the department.
The coal stock at power plant end is about 72 Lakh tonnes, sufficient for 4 days requirement, and that the Coal India Limited (CIL) end is more than 400 Lakh tonnes, which is being supplied to the power plants, as confirmed by the Centre few days before.
