It is not easy for the Haryana government to overcome the power crisis this time. One, despite the agreement with Adani and Tata companies, power supply has not started. Second, due to the increase in the rate of foreign coal, the screw is stuck regarding the new rates and the coal crisis has also started deepening in the state. The Haryana government has only 15 days’ coal stock left. If the supply of coal is not increased in the next few days, then the power crisis may increase further.
