Jharkhand Integrated Power, of Anil Ambaniâ€™s Reliance group, has proposed to join hands with NTPC in mining coal from mines in Jharkhand that have been given to the entities to fuel their upcoming power projects. Reliance is in the process of setting up a 4,000 MW ultra-mega power plant at Tilayia and NTPC is working on a nearly 2,000 MW unit at North Karanpura areas of Jharkhand. The centre has earmarked Kerendari B and C coal mines for the Tilayia project and North Karanpura for NTPC plant. Both mines are in Hazaribagh district. A joint approach would yield some 200 mt of additional coal, which is good enough to sustain a 2,000 MW plant for 25 years.
