Coal Demand

Coal India (CIL) is eyeing to supply 156 million tonnes (MTs) of coal to power sector during April-June 2023 quarter amid concerns over spike in coal demand. This would be 25.6% of the enhanced annual dispatch target of 610 MTs slated for this sector in 2023-24. Factors in favour of the company are a strong 68 MTs coal stock build up expected at its pitheads by 2022-23 end, which as of March 13, 2023 was 57.3 MTs. 

Also, the company would be scaling up its production into a higher orbit maintaining the pace on the back of an unprecedented 700 MTs output, which it is on course to achieve by FY23 end. The state-owned coal mining behemoth is confident of meeting the enhanced 610 MTs coal supply target to power sector in 2023-24.
