<p><span style="font-size:9.0pt">Government this fiscal has experienced power supply bottleneck due to slack coal supplies. As a preventive measure, government has decided to rejuvenate power plants which are quick responsive to demand increase through reviving underutilized capacities of natural gas fired plants, assigning it as peaking stations. These Gas fired plants will also balance intermittent power supplies of solar &amp; wind.
