Trade union leader said that 3 day nationwide strike by coal workers against the government's decision to open the sector for private players led to almost nil production in most of the mines, and dispatch of the fuel was totally blocked. Hind Khadan Mazdoor Federation president Nathulal Pandey said "The three-day strike in coal industry is big success. In most of the mines, in all the three days, production was nil and the dispatch was totally blocked."

However, a Coal India official has said that coal production was 4.81 lakh tonne on Thursday, which is close to 38 per cent of the normal 13 lakh tonne per day,. CIL despatched 5.78 lakh tonnes on the first day of strike. This is around 42 per cent of the normal off-take of 14 lakh tonne per day. On Friday CIL produced 5.55 lakh tonnes of coal Friday. On the second day of strike CIL dispatched 4.52 lakh tonne of coal.

According to analysts, hit in the coal production due to the three-day strike is not likely to impact the power industry and electricity generation as the power houses have sufficient stock of dry fuel
