Delhi HC Ask CIL To Supply Coal To Reliance Power’s Butibori Unit-I

Reliance Power today said state-run Coal India has been directed by the Delhi High Court to immediately commence coal supplies to the Unit-I of Butibori power project.

“The Delhi High Court in its Order dated January 31, 2018 has granted interim relief to Butibori Thermal Power Plant (TPP) and has directed Coal India Ltd (CIL) to immediately commence the supply of coal to Unit 1 of Butibori Plant, equivalent to Annual Contracted Quantity of 1.23 million tonnes per annum through its subsidiary South Eastern Coalfields Ltd,” Reliance Power said in a BSE filing.

Reliance Power has set up 2 x 300 MW Butibori Plant near Nagpur through its subsidiary Vidarbha Industries Power Ltd (VIPL), which is supplying its entire power to Reliance Infrastructure Ltd (Distribution Utility), which distributes electricity to over 28 lakh consumers in Suburban Mumbai under a long-term Power Purchase Agreement approved by Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission.

While coal is being supplied to Unit 2 by Coal India through its subsidiary Western Coalfields Ltd, the supply was not commenced to Unit 1 of the Butibori Plant despite a valid Letter of Assurance (LoA) issued by the Coal India subsidiary pursuant to the recommendations of Standing Linkage Committee (Long Term) comprising of Ministry of Coal, Ministry of Power, CIL, Central Electricity Authority and Railways among others, in 2008, the company said.
