Coal power crisis
The heat of the coal and power crisis has now reached the political circles of the state and the centre. Due to this, the tension between the government departments of both the governments is also increasing. Amidst the controversy over coal payment, Rajasthan Vidyut Utpadan Nigam has sought an outstanding claim of Rs 459 crore to Coal India Company. He has clarified that after this claim, on the contrary, South Eastern Coalfields Limited (SECL), a subsidiary of Coal India, will return more than Rs 300 crore to the State Production Corporation.
The corporation has claimed that there is no arrear payment, but advance payment is being made for coal. Both SECL and NCL, both the subsidiaries of Coal India, have additional amounts deposited. This matter has heated up till Delhi. Energy Secretary Subodh Agrawal, who went to Delhi, also clarified the situation in this regard to the Union Coal Secretary. Tried to know his side from Central Coal Secretary Anil Jain in this matter, but the matter could not happen.
this is the case
SECL sent coal to the state, but it turned out to be less in quality and weight. On this, the State Production Corporation sought its claim. The matter reached the Disputes Settlement Committee (Alternative Dispute Resolving Mechanism) of the Ministry of Coal. Here the claim of the corporation is accepted as correct. After this, the corporation submitted a claim of Rs 459 crore under the prescribed criteria and procedure. However, the company has not settled till now, but continues to deny this claim on the basis of its logic.
Meanwhile, SECL informed about the outstanding payment of Rs 277.61 crore till 25 September 2021. However, it was claimed to have been paid out of it. In this the corporation's claim of Rs 459 crore was not adjusted.
Payment status to both the subsidiaries of Coal India
1. NCL (Northern Coalfields Ltd.): Rs.15 crores has been given in advance. From here, contracts for 3 rakes of coal every day, 4 are being taken now.
2. SECL (South Eastern Coalfields Limited): Advance payment from 1st October. Earlier, Rs 277.61 crore was outstanding, but a claim of 459 crores. Under the contract, 7.5 rakes have to come from here every day, now getting one.
(Claim of Energy Department and State Electricity Generation Corporation. Most of the coal is coming through these two subsidiaries of Coal India in the state)
One of the two companies of Coal India has been given money in advance and has sought a claim of Rs 459 crore from the other company. In such a situation, instead of arrears, we have to take money. The information regarding outstanding dues of crores of rupees is completely wrong. Spoke to the Union Minister of Coal and Energy in this matter. They have accepted our point and assured that now at least 9 rakes will be sent.
