State-owned power giant NTPC is in talks for buying out equity of state utilities in some joint venture projects apart from taking over some of their stressed businesses as part of its drive to augment capacity.

Coal import rises by 12% to 18 MT in January 18.2.2018 General News
The country's coal import increased by 12.4 per cent to 18.49 million tonnes (MT) in January, against 16.44 MT in the same month of the previous fiscal, according to m-junction, a leading name in the e-auction space. On a month-on-month basis, however, there was a flat growth in non-coking coal, it said, adding the "met coal imports were up both on a yearly and monthly basis, thanks to the downtrend in January prices and the recent growth spurt in the Indian steel sector." "The higher volume of coal and coke imports in January (about 12.5 per cent growth year-on-year) is mainly due to 1 MT increase in both non-coking coal and met coal imports during the month under review," m-junction services -- an online procurement and sales platform floated jointly by state-run SAIL and steel behemoth Tata Steel -- said. "Coal import (all type of coals) in January 2018 stood at 18.49 MT (provisional), higher than 16.44 MT recorded for January 2017," it said. Overall, coal and coke imports in ...

Coal India's foreign dreams lose steam in bid to fuel domestic demand 16.2.2018 News
With Coal India now prioritising availability of thermal coal to the power plants by streamlining both its road and rail supply network, its plans of acquiring a 20-25 per cent stake in an Australian firm which could have ensured steady procurement of coking coal, has been put on the backburner.Apart from prioritising steady production across its mines, the company is now closely coordinating with Railways to make 288 rakes available each day for supply of the black diamond to the power plants - an exercise which is the top priority now.
