Times of India reported that the Central Government has given approval to Tamil Nadu, facing shortage owing to flooding of coal fields, to import thermal coal. Electricity minister P Thangamani told TOI on Wednesday that the Centre had accorded permission to import and e-tenders have been floated for purchase of 30 lakh tonnes coal. He said "The coal stocks would arrive in the first week of October.”

Thangamani said that besides importing, TN has also requested the Centre for additional coal supply. He said “We asked for 20 rakes of coal. The Centre has agreed to send 13 rakes accounting for about 52000 tonnes of coal approximately.”
