Coal Ministry asks Reliance Power to cut production from Sasan’s coal mines
The Ministry of Coal has asked Reliance Power Ltd to revise the production plan from two mines allocated to the Sasan ultra mega power project to 16 million tonne per annum and present a new mining plan for the same.
The mining plan for the two mines – Moher and Moher Amlohri Extn – is currently 20 million tonne per annum. Production has already started from these mines.
In a letter to Sasan Power Ltd, the Coal Ministry said, “Sasan Power Ltd is required to revise the mining plan of Moher and Moher Amlohri coal blocks from the preset 20 million tonne per annum to 16 million tonne per annum mine capacity so as to conform to the coal requirement of 16 million tonne per annum for the Sasan UMPP, being the specified end use plant.”
