The panel said it is concerned to note that huge amount of dues are outstanding from the state and other utilities for years.
"The Committee therefore, recommends that more vigorous efforts need to be taken by all (three) PSUs to recover outstanding dues and if warranted, punitive actions on the defaulting parties should also be taken," it said.
The three PSUs referred to are Coal India, Singareni Collieries Company and NLC India.
The panel noted that despite various initiatives taken by the PSUs to recover dues, desired results are yet to be seen.
