State Power Minister Satyendar Jain on Friday said that national capital is likely to face a power crisis as the coal reserves with the Dadri I and II power stations has decreased. In a letter to Union Power Minister RK Singh, Jain said that the declared capacity of the power station has come down to 934mw from 1,696mw.
“The imminent likelihood of shutdown of the thermal power units at Dadri will have an adverse impact on the power supply to Delhi and would cause serious discomfort to the citizens in the hot and humid weather,” Jain wrote in the letter.
Jain requested Singh to intervene and resolve the crisis. In another letter, dated June 27, Jain had informed the Minister about the shortage of coal supply to the NCR power plants at Dadri, Jhajjar and Badarpur.
”Your kind intervention in the matter led to augmentation of coal stocks for a while,” Jain wrote on Friday, adding that the stock position at Dadri has decreased fast over the past four days. Read More
