Union Minister RK Singh's assured about power crisis in Delhi, 'There is no crisis'


New Delhi : Following a meeting with officials of the Power Ministry and power discoms BSES and Tata Power, Union Power Minister R K Singh Sunday stated that there was no “crisis” regarding power supply in Delhi,

This came a day after Delhi Power Minister Satyendar Jain warned that the national capital could face a blackout in the next two days and equated the coal shortage to oxygen being in short supply during the second Covid wave.

As power demand recovered faster than expected, the country’s thermal power plants are struggling with critically low supplies of coal. As many as 104 thermal plants, with capacity of 126.8 GW of the total 135 thermal power plants in the country, are currently classified as having “critical” or “super critical” levels of coals stock for up to a week. A total of 72 plants with a capacity 89.5 GW have coal stocks of three days or less against the government’s guidelines of stocks for 14 days.
