The National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC) on Monday took a slew of steps to meet the increasing power demand in the country. In a press release it said, “The country is witnessing a sharp increase in power demand and NTPC is making all efforts for meeting it as per the grid requirement.”

Among the notable steps that are being taken by NTPC is the arrangement of coal at the stations where the stock position is critical. The Corporation is continuously coordinating with Coal India and Railways for augmenting coal supply at critical stations and diverting rakes wherever required. It is also augmenting about 2.7 Lakh MT import coal, left out from the contracts placed earlier. Further the Darlipalli Unit#2 (800 MW) has been put in operation for commercial purposes w.e.f 1st September, 2021.
