Forty second report on 'Stressed/Non-Performing Assets in Gas based Power Plants': Standing Committee on Energy (2018-19)

The 42nd standing committee on energy in this report on stressed gas-based power plants tabled in Parliament pulled up the government for diverting coal cess to compensate States for revenue loss post-GST, and recommended financial support to the stressed gas-based power projects in the country from National Clean Energy Fund (NCEF).

The NCEF was created out of cess on coal at ₹400 per tonne to provide financial support to clean energy initiatives and an Inter Ministerial Group chaired by the Finance Secretary was constituted to approve the project/schemes eligible for financing under NCEF.
