According to the provisional data of the Ministry of Coal, while the total offtake of the coal sector was 70.8 mt during the month, the power sector offtake touched 61.7 mt in April. At the same time, coal supplies to the power sector from Coal India alone stood at 49.7 mt. Coal supplies to the power sector by CIL were 15.6 per cent higher in the last month on yearly basis in the wake of high demand of the dry fuel from electricity generating plants.
India’s coal yield took off by 28% to 66.1 million tonnes (mt) in April in the midst of popularity from thermal power plants as a few parts of the nation grappled with power lack. The general coal creation was at 51.6 mt in April 2021. “During the period of April, 2022 India’s absolute coal production remained at 66.1 mt,” the coal service said in an articulation. While Coal India (CIL) and its auxiliaries delivered 53.4 mt of coal, production by Singareni Colleries Company (SCCL) remained at 5.3 mt and by captive mines at 7.3 mt during the last month.
