Most of the CPPs are operating at about half of their rated capacities as coal stocks at their plants have dwindled to two to three days.Coal meant to be supplied to CPPs through railway rakes are pending since March this year. The woes of CPPs are compounded by a preferential treatment meted out to the Independent Power Producers (IPPs), alleged an industry source. "Coal backlog is piling since the IPPs have always got preferential allotment. This has created a situation where the CPPs have been kept waiting for months together as rakes are not available. Since rakes are not available for linkage and washery rejects, non-core sectors including CPPs are forced to buy more through e- auctions where prices have surged 50 per cent from Rs 3000 to Rs 4500 per tonne", the source added.The coal crunch ...
