Coal linkages to private companies
As per New Coal Distribution Policy (NCDP), 2007, Standing Linkage Committee (Long-Term) [SLC (LT)] is authorized to recommend the Letters of Assurance (LOAs) for supply of coal. Based on the SLC (LT)´s recommendation, 177 LOAs have been issued to various power plants so far, including Central/State Government Sector as well as private power producing companies, covering capacity of 108,000 MW. Of this 108,000 MW capacity, the competent authority in 2013 had approved signing of Fuel Supply Agreements (FSAs) in respect of 78,000 MW capacity power plants which have been commissioned or are likely to be commissioned by 31st March.
