CIL takes accountability for short-term linkages to 3,000 MW power plants

By Religare

State-run Coal India Ltd takes the accountability to provide short-term coal linkages to power plants with an aggregate capacity of only 3,000 MW instead of 11,460 MW.

According to the statement, the coal ministry had already refused to provide short-term fuel linkages to some power plants as they come under the 44 captive blocks allotted but not developed due to different reasons.

Commenting on the issue, Coal India in its letter to Coal Ministry wrote, "It is estimated that the liability of CIL (Coal India) would be for about 14 million tonnes maximum in 2014-15 for accommodating tapering linkage cases, which is effectively equivalent to about 3,000 MW."


The short-term linkages (tapering linkages) are for the power plants which are scheduled to be commissioned by March 31, 2015, said the media report.
