New Delhi: Amit Shah, met his cabinet colleagues who are in charge of coal and power ministries ahead on Monday. As amid the shortage of electricity in many parts of the country, due the inadequate and the shortage of coal supplies. 

The meeting of the three ministers was held an hour long and in the meeting the three ministers discussed the availability of coal to the power plants and the current power demands. Apart from the ministers the meeting was also attended by the senior bureaucrats, and also the officials who belonged from the state run energy conglomerate NTPC limited.     

Several states have been warned about the blackouts, even though the central government has further assured that India is backed up with ample amounts of coal stocks which is enough to meet the demands of the power plants that are on run. Seeking of allay of the imminent blackouts in New Delhi and several other cities. As of now the current fuel stock which is backed up at the coal power plants is about 7.2 million tons, and it is sufficient for the upcoming four days, said in a statement by the ministry of coal on Sunday. 

The government owned mining giants have a stock of 40 million tons which is further being supplied to the power stations. The coal ministry has said there is ample stock of coal to meet the demand. "Any fear of disruption in power supply is entirely misplaced," the ministry said. 

The clarification even came from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and he even warned of the looming power crisis within the city which is home to over 20 million people.

As the third largest economy body, the high rebounds of the coronavirus wave, and the heavy flooded monsoons has led to the flooded coal mines and has resulted into the disrupt of the transport networks which in turn has led to the sharp rises in the price of the coal buyers, which also includes the power stations.
