In news from the energy sector, Reliance Industries is among the top buzzing stocks today.

Reliance Industries on Wednesday said differences between Zee Entertainment's managing director Punit Goenka and Invesco over how the Goenka family would raise its stake in the broadcaster, led to a collapse in merger talks with Reliance's media properties.

Reliance Industries had proposed to merge its media properties with Zee in February after Invesco helped arrange discussions between Goenka and representatives.

Reliance said that it regretted being dragged into a dispute between Zee and the US investment firm.

The statement came after Invesco said Reliance had approached Zee for a merger.

A day earlier, Zee said Goenka rejected a deal proposed by Invesco to merge Zee Entertainment with entities owned by an unnamed "large" Indian strategic group.

All these statements have come amid a tussle between Invesco and Zee's founding family. Invesco is seeking to recast the board of Zee while Zee has challenged Invesco's attempt to restructure the board in courts.

Reliance Industries share price has opened the day up by 0.4%.

Moving on to news from the power sector, the power crisis in five most-affected states is likely to ease soon as Tata Power restarted its mega power plant at Mundra yesterday after Punjab and Gujarat agreed to pay actual costs.

Reports state that other states are likely to follow.

The Gujarat government agreed to buy 1,800 MW power from Tata Power's ultra-mega power project at Rs 4.50 per unit-higher than tariff agreed in its executed contract-for four weeks, a government official said.

According to sources, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Haryana, beneficiaries of Tata Power's 4,000 MW project and Adani Power's 3,300 MW capacity, have also been negotiating with the companies over supply at actual cost on temporary basis.

The states have been buying the power at Rs 13-16 per unit.

In response to a query, Tata Power's executive told that it started one of its five 800 MW units at Mundra on Wednesday evening to supply power to Gujarat and Punjab.

The move is likely to lower spot power prices immediately while easing pressure on domestic coal, whose supplies have also started to improve.
