Coal India December Output Crosses Target
New Delhi: State-owned CIL on Friday said its production in December stood at 52.07 million tonnes (MT) as against the target of 51.08 MT for the month.

However, in the April-December this fiscal, the company produced 373.45 MT of coal, missing the target of 383.08 MT for the period, Coal India (CIL) said in a filing to BSE.

The government last week said that the output by CIL crossed 9 per cent over last year's production.

"Coal production by Coal India crosses 9 per cent over last year's record production. Well done. Keep it going. Still a very long way to go," Coal Secretary Anil Swarup had said in a tweet.

CIL accounts for over 80 per cent of the domestic coal production. Coal India missed the production target for 2014-15 by 3 per cent, recording an output of 494.23 million tonnes.

The government had set a production target of 550 million tonnes for the coal PSU for the current fiscal.
