HYDERABAD: The power demand is at its peak and the stocks of coal are low at the Simhadri Thermal Power station. In a letter to NTPC officials, AP Transco chairman and managing director Ajay Jain wanted them to maintain adequate coal stocks at the thermal power stations to avoid inconvenience to the farm sector in Rabi.

Jain said the 1,000 MW stage-1 Simhadri thermal station dedicated to Andhra Pradesh has been producing low output in the last 15 days due to low coal stocks.

He advised officials of thermal power stations to ensure adequate coal stocks are maintained with them and ensure full-capacity generation.
