New Delhi. Power producers have appealed to the Ministry of Coal to intervene in the matter of Chhattisgarh not issuing e-permits for transportation of coal to independent power producers (IPPs) . The Association of Power Producers (APP) has written a letter to the coal secretary on August 17, saying, "He intervened in this matter and sent the IPP to the concerned officials of the Mines / Minerals Department of Chhattisgarh for coal Instruct the issue of e-permit for transportation. ”APP has also written a letter to the Chief Secretary of Chhattisgarh on August 17 about this. The letter said, "If the Mines / Minerals Department of Chhattisgarh State has a similar attitude, then there will be no option but to import coal to meet its requirement before the IPP."

The letter stated that this situation would not be compatible with the central government's vision of self-reliant India. Coal companies supply coal to IPPs by issuing supply orders under agreements such as memorandums of understanding (MOUs) or e-auctions. Such permits permit the transportation of coal directly from the mine to the IPP or from the mine to the washery operator. Later it is forwarded to IPP. Coal cannot be transported without e-permit.
