Indian state owned coal miner Coal India Limited, which is already reeling under the pandemic stress causing adverse impact on demand and supply of dry fuel, said that the situation will remain uncertain in July-September as some states are resorting to fresh lockdowns. CIL said “Due to continuing lockdown and various guidelines issued by central and state governments, normalcy has not been restored yet, affecting coal production and despatch.”

Coal India had produced 121.01 million tonne of coal during April 1-June 30, compared to 136.94 million tonne during the same period last year. The continued lockdown during this period had an adverse impact on coal dispatch from CIL. With decrease in power demand by about 30 per cent and shut down of many industries in non-power sector due to lockdown, the off take of CIL decreased to 12O.62 million tonne as compared to 153.49 million tonne during the same period last year.

The coal production in some of the major mines is still affected due to high coal stock and less off take. Pithead stock on May 31 reached up to 78.093 million tonnes during April 1-June 30, as the stock at power plants also remained high during this period.
