Sale of Power by NTPC


Since some of the beneficiary states are not scheduling full power allocated to them, it has affected the generation plan of NTPC.  NTPC has to back down its generation because of this.


            Backing down details since 2009-10 is given below:

            2009-10 -           5.27 Billion Units

            2010-11 -           13.23 Billion Units

            2011-12 -           11.07 Billion Units (Upto November, 2011)


            During the period April-November, 2011, around 11.07 Billion Units could not be generated by NTPC stations on account of low generation schedule by beneficiaries.

            NTPC is blending imported coal to mitigate the shortage in domestic coal.  The average percentage of blending of imported coal during the year 2010-11 was around 8%.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Power Shri K.C.Venugopal  in a written reply to a question in  Lok Sabha today.
