India’s Coal Ministry has requested thermal power generation companies to increase plant level coal stocks to about 30-million tons, from 16.5-million tons at present, ahead of the monsoon season starting in June. Coal Secretary Susheel Kumar has said that a production and supply plan is being prepared to avoid a repeat of last year’s situation, when thermal power stations grappled with coal shortages during the rainy season.
