Reuters exclusively reports power cuts in Indian states as coal stocks shrink

Reuters reported exclusively that North Indian states have suffered electricity cuts and face further outages because of a lack of coal, contradicting government assurances there is enough power. Over half of India’s 135 coal-fired power plants, which in total supply around 70% of India’s electricity, have fuel stocks of less than three days, data from the federal grid operator showed. Residents in several states reported power outages.
