Government allows Reliance Power to produce coal from its Moher and Moher-Amlohri captive blocks

The central government has allowed Reliance Power Limited to produce 18 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of coal from its Moher and Moher-Amlohri captive coal blocks in 2017-18, in excess of the cap of 17 mtpa. The company was given the permission to produce an additional 1 mtpa for the financial year to run its 3,960 MW Sasan ultra mega power project (UMPP) in Madhya Pradesh. Reliance Power had stated that the cap was not enough to carry out operations until the end of the financial year and an additional 2 mtpa production was required to prevent a shutdown. The Sasan UMPP comprises six units of 660 MW each.
