NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India plans to evoke an emergency law next month which would force power plants running on imported coal to generate power, two government sources told Reuters on Monday, as it expects power demand to surge to record levels this summer.
Power ministry officials will work with those involved in debt restructuring of financially stressed idle plants to make them functional, the sources said.
