Coal Shortage may hit Power Crisis in Delhi

<p><span style="font-size:9.0pt">Delhi has a demand of around 6,000 MW, state meets requirement through indigenous power plants in state and balance through PPA outside state. State has shown its concern to Central Government over depleting coal stocks at thermal Power Plants at Dadri, Jhajjar and Badarpur and has urged to&nbsp;resolve the issues at earliest. These plants experienced less than half PLF due to looming coal shortages. Shortage of Rail Racks and dedicated freight corridor is one of the major issues for shortages spanning across plants. Central Government must mull over focusing strengthening of transportation infrastructure to meet the current electricity demand of state, as well as future.</span></p>
