Against a peak demand of 104,000 megawatts last month, supply was 90,000 megawatts. That's a shortfall of 14 percent.

Interesting tidbit, do we know if this is after T&D losses? India's T&D losses are still in the range of 30-35%, one of the highest in the world.

Now a A3-D2 with only 2 stage has lesser propulsion thus lesser range (4850Km), but then a fully load 3 stage 47.3 tonne chariot will deliver 1.5 tonne across much greater range than 5,500Km on that chart. How does 8,000 Km sound? SRDE Yindoo has big danda. Arun, aapke muhan mein ghee sakkar. :P
