US Supreme Court to hear dispute over power plant in Gujarat 22.5.2018 General News
The US Supreme Court has agreed to take up an appeal by Indian villagers against a power plant in Gujarat, funded by US-based International Finance Corporation (IFC), which has allegedly resulted in environmental damages. "Petition granted", the Supreme Court said yesterday. The case would come up for hearing in the next session, beginning October. The villagers, led by Budha Ismail Jam, along with several other farmers and fishermen, allege that coal-fired Tata Mundra Power Plant has resulted in widespread environmental damages. Washington DC-based IFC, the financing wing of the World Bank, has provided USD 450 million in financial assistance to the project. The Supreme Court said it would decide whether the IFC enjoyed immunity under the 1945 International Organisations Immunity Act. Jam and other petitioners knocked the door of the Supreme Court this year after lower courts dismissed their petitions arguing that the IFC enjoyed immunity, like other foreign countries, under the 1945

Top US court to examine India power plant complaint 22.5.2018 General News
The US Supreme Court said today it will examine a complaint by Indian villagers who say they are suffering from pollution caused by a coal power plant funded by a US-based institution. The plant, owned by the Tata Group in the Indian state of Gujarat, was built with funding from the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a sister organisation of the World Bank that specializes in development assistance. The IFC says the plant, which has a capacity of 4,150 megawatts, uses advanced technology to improve efficiency, save fuel and reduce emissions while generating power for areas that are "chronically short of electricity." But the fishermen and farmers who are plaintiffs in the case denounce the damage caused to marine fauna and the pollution of soil by coal dust. The plaintiffs argue that the IFC failed to comply with its charter, which makes the release of funds conditional on compliance with environmental standards. The case will be argued and judged in the next session of the ...

Captive plants cry foul over govt decision to boost supplies to power producers 21.5.2018 General News
A captive power producers' body today warned that the government's decision to dedicate all coal supplies to central, state and independent power plants would bring the industry to a "standstill". The Indian Captive Power Producers Association (ICPPA) in a letter to the Prime Minister's Office and Railway and Coal Minister Piyush Goyal urged for resuming coal supplies to captive plants, which have been set up by various industries like steel, cement and aluminium to meet their own demand. The installed captive power generation capacity is about 47GW in the country . The ICPPA shot off the letter today after the government decided to supply coal to state/central power plants and independent power producers from May 19 to June 30 to avoid any electricity crisis during summer season. The new adhoc decision without any advance notice would bring industry to standstill particularly the continuous process based sectors like aluminium, the association warned. They also noted that captive ...

Govt to step up coal supply to power plants from May19 -June 30 21.5.2018 General News
Government has decided to augment coal supplies to centre/ state power plants and independent power producers (IPPs) from May 19 to June 30 to overcome shortage of the dry fuel and check power crisis. The decision was taken in a joint meeting of power, coal and railways ministries on May 17, 2018. However, experts think the move may affect captive power generators in sectors like steel and cement. Ministry of railways has asked all its zones to accord high priority to power plants from May 19-June 30. "It has been decided that loading of coal for power houses (plants of central/state utilities and IPPs) from good sheds should be accorded high priority till June 30, 2018. These instructions will be applicable on the rake supplies made in goods sheds from May 19, 2018 onwards," it said in a letter to the zones. The move comes in the wake of power ministry's request for granting high priority in loading of coal for power houses from goods sheds so as to facilitate higher supplies of coal

Coal imports by power plants fall 22 pc in April 20.5.2018 General News
Coal imports by power utilities fell by 22.23 per cent to 3.73 million tonnes in April mainly due to decline in shipments by imported coal based power projects in the country. According to latest data compiled by the Central Electricity Authority (CEA), coal imports by the power utilities came down to 3.731 million tonnes (MT) in April this year from 4.798 MT in April 2017 mainly due to lower deliveries at imported coal based plants. In April 2018, however, the total coal imports by power utilities for blending with domestic coal rose to 1.427 MT from 1.078 MT in April last year. The scope of reducing coal import is always more at power plants using domestic coal as they use high gross calorific value imported fuel for blending. The data shows that the coal imports came down by imported coal based power plants in April this year. These plants imported 2.304 MT of coal in April 2018 down from 3.720 MT in the same month a year ago. Experts think that higher international coal prices may
