These days the news of coal crisis is coming to the fore in the country. Due to the shortage of coal, the industries are facing danger. Due to the shortage of coal, the industries are facing a lot of loss. In view of the electricity crisis, priority is being given to the supply of coal in the power sector. Due to this, enough coal is not available for other industries. Due to the crisis of coal, production in factories of other metals including steel, aluminum, cement, copper and zinc is decreasing. This is the reason why the price of the metals has started increasing.
Due to shortage of coal and power crisis, Coal India has stopped the supply of coal for other industries. Due to the absence of coal in the metallurgical industries, production is decreasing. This has a direct impact on the price of metals. The price of many metals has reached a 13-year high on the metal exchange. At the same time, many jobs are also facing crisis.
Impact on industries due to shortage of coal
Amidst the shortage of coal, the Aluminum Association of India has said that more than 8 lakh people will lose their jobs if the supply of coal is not restored to the plants immediately. He said that the loans of banks will go up by more than one lakh crore. Due to this, there will be a loss of extra national and foreign exchange of 90 thousand crore rupees. Explain that due to shortage of coal, the price of coal in brick kilns has increased from Rs 7,000 per metric ton to Rs 22 thousand.
Brick cost Rs 1500 to Rs 1700
Due to inflation, brick kilns have not been started in many states of the country so far this season. Due to this the cost of brick has gone up from Rs 1500 to Rs 1700. At the same time, due to the power crisis, the frozen food industry may be affected the most. However, in case of power outage, this business may depend on the generator. But due to the increase in the price of diesel, their cost can increase a lot.
Amidst the shortage of coal stock in the power house, Coal India has appealed to its subsidiaries not to do any kind of e-auction of coal. Coal India says that till the situation becomes normal, no auction should be done except special forward e-auction for the power sector.
