 An inter-ministerial task force has recommended shifting of coal linkage of Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Ltd (GSECL) of about 1.2 million tone (MT) from South Eastern Coalfields Limited (SECL) to Western Coalfields Limited (WCL), leading to annual savings in transportation cost of about Rs. 100 crore to GSECL, union minister Piyush Goyal said.

The minister stated that apart from this, swapping of 1.3 MT coal linkage between GSECL and Sipat thermal power station of National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has also been implemented with annual potential savings of Rs. 458 crore to GSECL. 
 
Presently, coal is supplied to GSECL at the notified price of WCL. The provision of third party sampling and analysis at the loading end is available. The Central Institute of Mining and Fuel Research (CIMFR) is the third party for sampling and analysis.
