India is witnessing acute shortage of coal leading to electricity blackouts in many states while the country swelters under record summer temperatures.

According to the All India Power Engineers Federation (AIPEF), 12 states in the country are reporting low coal stock to run thermal power plants. Meanwhile, the first half of April 2022, the domestic power demand has hit a 38-year high for the month.

States like Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Punjab, Jharkhand and Haryana are facing power cuts due to the coal shortage. The AIPEF says that the country has been reporting power shortage since October 2021.
