MoC allows automatic transfer of coal linkages from old to new projects

The Ministry of Coal has allowed the automatic transfer of coal linkages granted to old power projects to new supercritical plants. The policy will be applicable to public sector power plants only, and of these to only those that already have long-term linkages or a letter of assurance. In case the capacity of the new supercritical plant is higher than that of the old plant, additional coal will be allocated on a priority basis, subject to coal availability.
