Goyal tells WCL to supply ample coal to Mahagenco
Western Coalfields (WCL) has been instructed by Piyush Goyal, Coal and Railway Minister, to supply ample and good quality coal to Mahagenco with sufficient rakes for supplying coal to the state’s power generation company. Mahagenco informed the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court that it was not getting ample coal. Mahagenco has floated tenders for importing 2 million tonne coal to bridge the deficit. Goyal further directed Mahanadi Coalfields (MCL) and South-Eastern Coalfields (SECL) to supply contract quantity of coal to the company and provide their spare coal to Koradi and Khaparkheda power plants.
