He said that 13 coal rakes were received against a total requirement of 22 rakes on Tuesday. He said that although the coal rake supply is lesser yet consistency of supply is being maintained. CMD said that besides sufficient number of rakes are in pipeline and as such the coal position shall improve in the coming few days.

A.Venu Prasad said that record repair of channel of Anandpur Sahib Hydel Project has given a big relief to the PSPCL in this power deficit scenario where power has to be purchased by the PSPCL at higher rates whereas the per unit cost from its own project is only 25 paise.
