As a result, CIL registered a decline of 7 per cent to 218.4 million tonnes in the April-September 2019-20 as against 235 million tonnes in April-September 2018-19. With torrential rains hitting coal production, Coal India Ltd recently said it was keeping a close watch on the current situation to ensure smooth supplies to power plants.

CIL, which accounts for over 80 per cent of the domestic production, saw its output decline by 6 per cent to 241 MT in April-September on account of monsoon.
