The development comes as a relief for the three struggling power plants after an abrupt jump in Indonesian coal and the refusal of states to pay higher tariffs, the report said.
The main power procurer from the three plants in the state, Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Ltd (GUVNL), has been directed to amend the pacts and approach the regulators for tariff adoption and approval, sources privy to the development told the ET.
The three power companies together produce about 10,000 mega-watt (MW) of coal-generated electricity.
