The supply of coal to the power sector by state-owned Coal India has dropped 22 per cent to 31.95 million tonnes in April amid slump in the fuel demand in the country on account of COVID-19-induced lockdown. Coal India Limited has supplied 40.90 million tonnes of April 2019. The coal supply by state-owned Singareni Collieries Company Ltd to the power sector also dropped by 38.6% to 2.86 million tonnes in April, from over 4.66 million tonnes in the year-ago period, the report said.

A Central Electricity Authority report said that as on April 30, 2020, there were 50.89 million tonnes of coal stocked up at the power houses in India, enough to last for 31 days. CIL itself has a pit-head stock of about 76 million tonnes as on April 30.
