Does Government sector coal is given to Private sector?

India generates more than 55% of its electricity through thermal power stations. These power stations require coal for power generation and if they do not get coal then they can not generate electricity. According to recent reports in media, government allotted more coal blocks to private sector as compared to government sector companies.

Therefore, many government thermal power stations are facing shortage of coal and there is decrease in power generation. During summer season, electricity demand increases across many times in India and there is need for much higher electric power generation during this period. However, due to lack of coal all major thermal power stations are not able to generate electricity as per their potential.

Due to this coal shortage, numbers of new thermal power stations are waiting for coal to start function. However, government of India looks totally deaf towards this demand. Under such circumstances, it unlikely to see any improvement in power generation in India and people of India will be forced to face long electricity cuts this summer too.
