According to sources in the coal ministry, increasing mining from captive coal blocks has led to an increase in production.

In accordance with the MMDR (Amendment) Act of 2021, the Ministry also changed the Mineral Concession (Amendment) Rules of 1960 to permit lessees of captive mines to sell up to 50% of the total excess production of coal or lignite after satisfying the requirements of the end-use plants.
