India : Coal India allows power companies to swap supplies

State-run power generating companies will now have the flexibility to swap their coal supplies and divert them to more efficient power plants.

Coal India last week signed agreements for aggregation of contracted quantity of coal with state and central power generating companies for flexible movement of coal that would help reduce the cost of power generation, a senior company official said.

The move will allow all coal linkages given to plants of state and central utilities like NTPC to be combined.
