NEW DELHI , Jan. 11, 2022 (Local News) -Operations of Indian paper mills are getting severely impacted by lower coal allocation and non-availability of adequate railway rakes for transportation of coal to the mills, an industry body said on Tuesday.

Indian Paper Manufacturers Association (IPMA) said that for the last several months, Coal India and its subsidiaries have prioritised coal supplies the thermal power plants on priority at the cost of non-power sectors.

''The problems have been compounded by even priority allocation of railway rakes to the power sector/ thermal power plants,'' it said in a statement.
