In a strongly worded letter to Petroleum Minister Veerappa Moily, Power Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has highlighted the acute gas shortage faced by power plants in the country. Scindia said lenders are on the verge of classifying 13 gas-based power plants, aggregating 5,000 megawatts, as NPAs because gas supply from the KG Basin is drying up.
