TATA Power likely to announce an end to building new coal plants today

TATA Power’s AGM meeting is underway in Mumbai in which a major decision to end building any new coal plant would be taken. The announcement will likely happen on Tuesday (June 18 ) at their 100th AGM in Mumbai.

TATA Power, one of India’s biggest integrated power companies, is likely to announce an end to building new coal plants today (June 18) in the wake of rapid fall in the cost of power generated by solar and wind, and the rising cost of coal.
