NTPC concerned about depleting supply of coal
The NTPC management has started raising the alarm on the declining coal stock in its two units. NTPC authorities from both Kahalgaon (Bihar) and Farakka based thermal power units have been in touch with the ECL authorities here and expressed their concern over the disruption of coal supply since the December 29 incident of sliding in one of its excavation sites in Lalmatia. HK Singh, general manager (Rajmahal area), however, did not give any deadline for resumption of the production in the mine area and said focus was mainly on the ongoing rescue operation.
