New Delhi: In the wake of recent power outages in the city, Delhi government on Wednesday asked the petroleum ministry to divert gas supply meant for Pragati power plant to the newly-constructed Bawana power plant as it has more efficient machinery. The proposal, which has been approved “in principal” by the petroleum ministry, will increase power supply in Delhi by upto 60 MW. Sources said the efficiency of Bawana plant is upto 25 per cent more than the Pragati plant.

“Since we do not know by when other power plants like Dadri will start functioning back to capacity, we decided to use all our resources and have a makeshift arrangement to solve the ongoing power problem,” Delhi Power Minister Haroon Yusuf said.
