Coal India had a tepid performance in the last quarter because of low demand as well as depressed coal prices. Production, as well as offtake, were muted on lesser power consumption in factories and offices. However, as evident from the production and offtake numbers, demand has continued to improve after resumption in industrial activities following the prolonged Covid-19-led lockdown. The company remains focused on automating the coal loading capacities in its 49 mines by 2024. Coal India is also set to be a major beneficiary of Central Government’s recent push to significantly reduce import of thermal coal in the coming years.
