TVNL head ache rubs salt into power wound

RUDRA BISWAS Ranchi, Aug. 3: While the state is reeling from severe power crisis, the lack of Tenughat Vidyut Nigam Limited (TVNL) chairman is a spanner in generating capacity power at the plant. Equipped with two units with a total installed capacity of 440 MW, TVNL is being forced to operate only one. Reason: since June 18, there is no one to authorise payments for regular coal purchases or to renew contracts with transporters for carrying coal from the collieries of Central Coalfields Ltd (CCL) to the TVNL plant at Lalpania.
