Power Crisis: Due to lack of coal, the shadow darkened due to power cuts in these states including Rajasthan
In fact, coal-fired power plants across the country are currently facing a shortage of coal. Power generation in Rajasthan was hit on Thursday due to shortage of coal in power plants, creating a power crisis in the state.
Some of the sacred plants are closed due to shortage of coal while in the remaining plants the coal reserves are left for a day or two due to lack of supply due to rain water in the coal mines.
According to the news agency Reuters, due to the shortage of coal, the north Indian states of the country have also faced power cuts. However, the Ministry of Power of India has refused to comment on this matter.
Meanwhile, as the coal shortage crisis deepens, the Delhi-based Tata Power unit has informed its customers by sending a message over the phone, urging them to use power judiciously from Saturday afternoon onwards.
