Other states too are facing shortage and have rung up the Union government to ask for coal reserves. According to reports, on Friday, the five thermal power plants had enough coal reserves for 3.8 days. This put the state in a vulnerable category. The Tamil Nadu government also got in touch with the Union government and Coal India Ltd to alert them of the shortage.
