Critical Power Crisis in the Capital!

Chief minister Kejriwal appealed to the Central government Regarding the Power situation in the capital.

CM Arvind Kejriwal’s tweet


The power crisis is on a hike due to the shortage of coal worldwide. India is the second-largest coal-consuming nation after China. China has extensively experienced a power blackout a few days back. Now, Kejriwal said, "Delhi could face a power crisis!" stretching to the megacities that have already been struggling with energy supplies for the past three months. He also mentioned that they're attempting their best to dodge the crisis but the Centre has to intervene in the situation. He also informed that some of the Major coal-fired plants supplying the city scarcely have a day's stock left.

After the unforgettable covid crisis in April and mid-May, the capital and other states can face a power crisis, not only for days but for months. The situation is very critical in the whole country. The Chief Ministers of other states, including Yogi Adityanath have written to the Centre about it. Everyone is attempting to improve the situation as early as possible.

 Mr. Jain, the Delhi Power Minister, also forewarned that there would be a complete blackout in the capital after two days if the power plants supplying energy in Delhi don't receive coal on an immediate basis. He also said that the Centre should acknowledge the coal crisis as soon as possible. Simultaneously, he drew similarities between the coal crisis and the oxygen shortage during the COVID-19 second wave peak in April-May this year. He said, "When we had an oxygen crisis, they kept saying there was no such Crisis!".

RK Singh, Union Power Minister of India, commented that "Unnecessary panic has been created about coal shortage," adding that the situation will be in control in the subsequent days. He concluded by stating "ample power is available!".


This situation got more highlighted when the warning from Tata power arm (operating in New Delhi) sent SMS to its consumers to use power efficiently, relating to this coal shortage. The SMS sent on Saturday affirmed: "Due to limited coal availability in generation plants across the North, power supply scenario between 2 pm to 6 pm is at the critical level. Kindly use electricity judiciously. Be a responsible citizen. Inconvenience caused is regretted - Tata Power-DDL."
