Power Minister Piyush Goyal today said the central government will make available fuel for generating 400 MW additional power in Delhi by 8 PM tonight.

"The Delhi government had asked for gas from NTPC for generating 400 MW additional electricity by 8 pm tonight or late tonight," Goyal told reporters here.

This gas is for the Bawana power project which has a capacity of 1,500 MW but is generating only 290 MW.

"There is no shortage of power; only transmission and distribution is a problem," Goyal said.

He added that there will be a bulletin on power situation by the Delhi government everyday.
