Coal crisis leads severe power cut in Bihar


PATNA: An acute power crisis prevails in major part of Bihar for  the last couple of days. A large part of Bihar, including Muzaffarpur, Gaya, Bhagalpur, Darbhanga, Purnia and Saharsa, on Tuesday plunged into darkness following the shutdown of two units of NTPC's power generating plant. As a result Bihar drew a meagre 1,137 MW of electricity from all its sources against a normal demand of 1800 MW.

Two units each of the NTPC’s Farakka and Kahalgaon power stations have stopped generation due to lack of coal supply.
