The PSU has taken various measures for full utilisation of capex during 2017-18 financial year. Coal India accounts for over 80 per cent of the domestic coal production and is eyeing 1 billion tonnes of production by 2020.
CIL produced 38.44 million tonnes of coal in April, falling short of the target of 43.58 MT. Its offtake was 45.29 MT against the target of 49.51 MT. The company had missed the annual production target by 44.48 MT against a target of 598.61 MT for 2016-17.
