Falling efficiency levels of Indian coal-fired power plants: A slacks-based analysis

We use a comprehensive data set covering almost all Indian coal-fired power plants over the period 2005–14 to evaluate the technical efficiency of power plants using the Slacks-Based Measure model. We find that average technical efficiency falls from 0.847 in 2005 to 0.742 in 2014, indicating substa...(Read Full Abstract)

Psychological impact of covid-19 crises on students through the lens of Stimulus-Organism-Response (SOR) model
