India’s Coal Production to Clock Record 700 Million Tonnes in FY21

Coal Secretary Anil Jain said FY20 coal production was lower than the target of 660 million tonnes because of flooding of a key coal mine. India will produce a record 700 million tonnes of coal in the current fiscal ending March 2021, helping cut down on imports, Coal Secretary Anil Jain said. 

India produced 602.14 million tonnes of coal in 2019-20 fiscal, marginally lower than 606 million tonnes output in the previous year. “We are on track to producing 700 million tonnes of coal in 2020-21 fiscal,” Jain told PTI in an interview.
