THE DWINDLING coal stock at various thermal plants across the country is a major cause of worry and power supply has been affected in many states. A Central Electricity Authority report, which monitors the coal stock of 86 thermal plants with capacity of 85477 MW, maintains that half of the plants have less than 7 days of coal stock and 28 out of these are in super critical category of having less than 4 days stock. All the 7 thermal plants in Andhra are having less than 4 days coal stock - thus effecting power generation very badly. These include Ramagundam, Rayalseema, Simdhari and Tata Rao.
