MoP planning to finalise guidelines to improve coal supply to TPPs

The MoP is in the process of finalising guidelines to improve coal supply to thermal power plants (TPPs). These include setting up of a dedicated transportation system, setting up of power plants only within a distance of 500 km from the coal mines and mandatory construction of elevated closed belt conveyors for all TPPs within 20 km from the pithead of the coal mine. In addition, the central government is reportedly mulling over various opportunities in neighbouring countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Myanmar to sell power in a bid to revive the declining plant load factors in the thermal power segment.
