Pinarayi Vijayan to take a decision on imposing load shedding at high-level meeting today

Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister of  Pinarayi Vijayan has called a high-level meeting on Monday on power shortage in the state. As per short details derived from the source, it reads that the govt will discuss whether load shedding would be imposed or not during the meeting.

Earlier on Sunday, Electricity minister K Krishnankutty said the state will have to impose load shedding if the crisis faced by the country due to shortage of coal-based power generation continues. He has convened a meeting on Monday to discuss the situation. “The shortage of coal has affected power generation in the country and the power crisis is expected to continue for nearly 6 months. The KSEB  is monitoring the situation and people should cooperate with reduced use of power, especially during the peak hours,” Krishnankutty told before media.

Kerala state has been experiencing a shortage of 15 percent power from the central pool for the past few days following the closure of four thermal stations due to coal shortage. The Ministry of Coal on Sunday reassured the country that ample coal is available in the country to meet the demand of power plants.In an official release, the Ministry said any fear of disruption in the power supply is entirely misplaced.  Notably, the coal stock at power plant end is about 72 lakh tonnes, adequate for four days requirement, and that the Coal India Limited end is more than 400 lakh tonnes, which is being supplied to the power plants," a statement released by the govt reads.
