Rajasthan to get 24 hour power : Piyush Goyal

Rajasthan, Delhi and Andhra Pradesh are all set to get 24-hour power supply like Gujarat, Power Minister Piyush Goyal said today. "The programmes for provision of 24-hour power supply in the states of Delhi, Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh are ready for roll-out," he said without disclosing the date of its implementation. The Power Minister also revealed that the 'coal swap' with Gujarat, which the Government was trying for the last ten years, has also been completed. This implies that imported coal coming through Mundra port in Gujarat for use in power plants in Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand will be swapped with these states against indigenous coal from domestic mines for use in power plants in Gujarat.
