India currently has approximately 88,000 MW of coal based installed capacity. Approximately 30,000-35,000 MW of coal based capacity is likely to get commissioned in the balance of Eleventh Plan. The estimated target for Twelfth Plan capacity additions is likely to be 100,000 MW out of which around 70,000-75,000 MW is likely to come up as coal based capacity additions. As against the above mentioned capacity requirement, long-term coal linkage has been approved by the Standing linkage Committee of Ministry of Coal for thermal projects totaling to 61,036 MW including projects achieving Commercial operation in Eleventh Plan. However, benefits from all these projects are likely to be available in early Twelfth plan depending upon achievement of financial closure and. land acquisition.

Such a coal dominated capacity addition scenario requires prompt and precise fuel planning to avoid any serious capacity addition delays. To expedite the process, Ministry of Power has come up with a coal linkage policy in October 2009, which ranks the projects on the basis of ownership of the project and other parameters such as land acquisition, cooling water used, pit head location etc.
