  • In the intro, mention the recent power crisis.
  • In the body mention the factors leading to the power crisis such as the increased cost of imported coal, shortage of coal rakes, increase in peak demand in summer etc. In the body mention the measures such as increasing the limit of imported coal to 4%, invoking of Section 11 of the Electricity Act 2003, introducing of the concept of tolling etc. In the issues in invoking of the Section 11 mention that   Section 11(2) of the Act clearly mentions that the adverse financial impact would be offset by the regulator but the government has appointed a committee to do so.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need for addressing the issues to avoid repeat of the crisis in future.
