Power generation was hit at the 2,600 MW National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Ramagundam due to poor supply of coal from the Singareni Collieries Company limited and other coal agencies during this rainy season.

Presently, the NTPC Ramagundam was generating only 2,000 MWs against its installed capacity of 2,600 MWs due to shortage of coal. The power generation would further come down with the authorities planning to go in for annual overhaul of the seventh unit of 500 MWs from Tuesday late night onwards.
