No power crisis this festive season as 20 mt coal already imported

India, reportedly, will not face any power crisis during this festival season due to coal shortage at thermal power plants (TPPs) as it has already imported 20 million tonnes (mt) of coal this fiscal year.

Out of this, 15 mt has been used. Last year around this time, the country faced power crisis due to coal shortages at TPPs. This had prompted the centre to take a slew of measures to scale up supplies and manage the crisis in 2021.  This year, the country may import more coal if needed.
