Quality tests show NTPC is under-paying Coal India
New Delhi: The latest joint sampling done by NTPC and Coal India showed that the power producer is paying less for the quality of coal being supplied by the miner.
Joint-sampling at the coal loading point done last week showed that the fuel supplied to NTPC has a calorific value of 3,600-4,000 Kcal/kg.
This qualifies for grading between G-11 and G-13 categories that costs Rs 650-550 a tonne. However, NTPC is paying for G-17 grade that costs Rs 360 a tonne, an official involved with the sampling process told Business Line.
Moreover, when the quality of coal was tested after 24 hours as practised globally, the calorific value increased by another 300-400 Kcal/kg.
After a Mumbai court ordered a fresh trial in the Salman Khan hit-and-run case, petitioner in the case, Abha Singh said that this is a definite relief for Khan and that his lawyer will take full advantage of the same.
