Indian power ministry seeks more time for coal-fired plants to install emission cutting equipment

NEW DELHI, Jan 10 (Reuters) - India’s federal power ministry has proposed a new deadline for coal-fired power plants around New Delhi to install emission cutting equipment, a government official said on Friday.

The ministry has said that the power plants - 10 out of 11 of which missed a December 2019 deadline - be given deadlines starting July 2020 and ending December 2021 to install the equipment, the government official, who did not want to be named, told Reuters.

The environment ministry will take the final call on the power ministry’s proposal. (Reporting by Sudarshan Varadhan; Writing by Aftab Ahmed; Editing by Sanjeev Miglani)
