Committee to review coal linkages
An inter-ministerial panel will review the status of existing coal linkages to the power sector. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had announced in the Budget 2014-15 that adequate quantity of coal will be provided to power plants that are already commissioned or would be commissioned by March 2015, to unlock dead investments. The Power Ministry has also moved a draft Cabinet note to ensure coal linkages for power projects which are already commissioned or are likely to be commissioned by March. .
