Nine power projects to get coal supply

New Delhi, Dec 26 : The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs has approved the supply of coal to nine of the 24 units in which the development of coal blocks was delayed due to the 'Go-No-Go' Policy of the Ministry of Environment & Forests on FSA basis subject to review or readjustment.

There were 24 Thermal Power Plants (TPPs) / units with tapering linkages within 78,000 MW capacity.

"Only the quantities admissible under the Tapering Linkage Policy were approved for such plants. Subsequently, requests were received from developers and recommended by the MoP that some of the TPPs with tapering linkages could not develop their linked coal blocks as per the prescribed schedule for reasons beyond their control and therefore, coal supplies for such plants should continue," read a government statement.

"It has been proposed to provide additional coal supplies to these nine units for a period of three years (till 30.09.2016) or for the period that they were affected by the said policy or till such time the production actually starts from the blocks, whichever is earlier,"read the statement.

'It has also been proposed that the position would be reviewed at the end of the First, Second and Third year by the MoC along with MoP and Planning Commission. While the coal quantities admissible under Tapering Linkage Policy will be supplied through FSA, the additional quantities will be supplied on Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) basis, subject to availability of coal," it said.

The CCEA had earlier approved coal supplies to Thermal Power Plants (TPPs) with a capacity of 78,000 MW commissioned/ to be commissioned during the period from 01.03.2009 to 31.03.2015.
