This information  was given by Minister of State for Coal Shri Pratik Prakshbapu Patil  in a written reply in Lok  Sabha today. Shri Patil said that  Ministry of Coal/CIL has not received any categorical refusal    from the Association of Power Producers or others in respect of signing of the revised model Fuel Supply Agreement (FSA).  However,  CIL  has  received a request from NTPC  to consider signing of the FSA for the additional  units of their  existing  power stations  on the same parameters as done  with  their  existing  plants, but with revised trigger point on disincentive as per the Government directives. A representation has also been received from the Power Producers Association seeking certain changes in the new model FSA.CIL has been asked to examine the reference received from NTPC and the representation of Association of Power Producers, for taking appropriate action.  

 

         The Minister further said that to ensure regular coal supply  to the power producers, Ministry   of Coal has directed CIL to  sign FSAs for    supply of coal as per Annual Contracted Quantity (ACQ) with assured level of 80%  to  the  Power Plants which have been commissioned and/or would get commissioned between 1.4.2009 and 31.3.2015. This dispensation will be applicable in respect of plants having long term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with Distribution Companies (DISCOMS) and which have been identified by Central Electricity Authority / Ministry of Power.
