  • Helps to reduce operational and logistic costs, bringing power tariffs down for the consumers.
  • Facilitates state/Central ministries to display information about normative fixed and variable charges of electricity for the previous month.
  • An analysis of supply and demand/transfer of coal based on cumulative figures of consumption in previous month.
  • Operational and Financial parameters of each coal based station and Distance of Power plant form the Coal mine.

Conclusion: The Coal Mitra Web Portal has been designed to bring about flexibility in utilization of domestic coal by transferring the reserves to more cost efficient State/Centre owned or private sector generating stations, leading to lower generation costs and ultimately lesser electricity cost for the consumers, according to a government release.
