The State is likely to get some relief from the power crisis in the coming days with the Centre reportedly asking the Coal India and Singareni Collieries Company managements to ensure supply of coal for generating 350 MW power to the fuel-starved thermal generation stations at Simhadri and Ramagundam.

Though the power utilities have not received any communication in this regard, the supply of additional coal would certainly give some relief by bridging the shortfall to the tune of 8 MU. It may, however, not help in overcoming the power shortage completely.
