Karnataka seeks more coal from Centre 12.10.2017 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka government on Thursday requested the Centre to supply sufficient coal to its thermal power plants located in Ballari and Raichur, which have been facing a severe shortage in the recent days. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who met Union Power Minister R K Singh here, said that due to short supply of dry fuel, Raichur Thermal Power Station has one-day stock to generate power while Bellary Thermal Power Station has the stock of less than a day. Unless the Centre takes immediate steps to augment the supply, the generation of electricity will be hit severely, he said. Karnataka requires 80.79 lakh tonnes of coal for the period from October 2017 to March 2018 for these two power stations. The Centre must ensure that demand should be met without fail, the chief minister said in his memorandum. Siddaramaiah also requested the minister to extend a financial assistance of Rs 5,400 crore to Karnataka for establishing 2,000 MW power projects. Besides, he urged the minister to simplify the procedure for ...

BBMP finds loophole in CM's pothole directive 11.10.2017 Deccan Herald - City
With Chief Minister Siddaramaiah cracking the whip, the BBMP began fixing potholes on Wednesday. But don't expect smooth, safe roads in a fortnight: the BBMP is going by the letter of his instruction, and only filling up ditches that technically qualify as potholes. Four people have died since last week in accidents attributed to potholes. On Tuesday, Siddaramaiah gave the municipal authorities 15 days to fill up all potholes, but the BBMP has found a clever workaround. BBMP commissioner N Manjunath Prasad chaired a day-long meeting on Wednesday with mayor Sampath Raj, engineers and corporators. "We will just fill up potholes as defined by the BBMP," a BBMP engineer said at the meeting. His suggestion was accepted by the others present at the meeting. That means many stretches will remain as they are, fraught with risk for those riding two-wheelers. According to the BBMP, a pothole is a crater that appears on a smooth flowing, tarred road. The crater has to be created by wear and tear, increased ...

Coal supply still grim, state surviving on hydel generation 3.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The state government, which was earlier worried that drought would affect power generation, is now in a quandary as excessive rainfall has become a hurdle for getting the coal for its thermal plants. For the last two weeks, the state continues to be listed in the super critical stage by the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) in getting coal and generating thermal energy. According to CEA officials from Delhi and from Southern Regional Power Committee, the situation will continue to be grim till the end of the monsoon and till mining resumes. According to the energy department, against the standard reserve of 52,000 tonnes, the state has only 13,000 tonnes of coal, of which 4,000 is with Ballari Thermal Power Station (BTPS) and 9,000 tonnes at Raichur Thermal Power Station (RTPS). Till September 22, the department had a stock of 22,000 tonnes. "We require at least 25,000 tonnes of coal to run all the machines in the thermal power stations.
