CIL gets 100% booking in first single-window e-auction

On Wednesday, Coal India Limited (CIL) said its first-ever offer of 5.2 lakh tonnes of coal under the newly revamped single-window e-auction received an impressive response from coal consumers as 100% of the offered quantity got booked.

After merging their earlier auction windows into one, CIL conducted an online auction in two of its subsidiaries.The entire quantity of 3.2 lakh tonnes offered by Northern Coalfields Limited was fully booked under the newly structured auction window on March 3rd, 2022.

CIL official told the media that in a similar way, around 1.98 lakh tonnes placed under the sole e-hammer by Eastern Coalfields Limited were ordered totally.

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) had a meeting on February 26, where they approved the idea of one single spot e-auction window by coal companies for all consumers. This unique system will lead to uniform market-discovered prices for different grades of coal. Consumers from regulated and unregulated sectors as well as traders now have to contend under one common window when buying or selling this commodity.

CIL’s offer of e-auction coal is now mode agnostic, which means they will not specify the transportation method of coal. Earlier, the model for coal booked under different auctions used to be specified; with rail as the default mode and customers having the option to choose their preferred transport of rail or road.
