South Eastern Coalfields dispatches 139 mt of coal so far in FY22

South Eastern Coalfields Limited (SECL), a flagship arm of Coal India Ltd (CIL), has exceeded the last year’s coal dispatch figure by supplying 139 million tonnes (mt) of the dry fuel so far in the current financial year.

The biggest coal-producing firm had dispatched 138.8 mt in the last financial year 2020-21. The figure registered as of February 23 exceeded the last year’s cumulative dispatch, despite 36 days remaining for the closure of the current fiscal 2021-22.

Going by the stride, SECL is set to register the highest-ever coal dispatch in the present financial year. The Bilaspur-headquartered miner had rendered 14% more coal to the consumers as against last year.

As against the previous year, the company had provided 25% more coal to the power firms to enable sufficient stock, as per SECL spokesperson, elaborating that rake loading recorded a 13.4% increase as against last year.

In another significant leap forward, the company has liquidated 20 mt of its pithead stock.

The firm's Chairman and Managing Director Prem Sagar Mishra and the board of directors congratulated the SECL Collective and thanked labour and workers’ unions besides railways, Chhattisgarh government and other stakeholders for their help.
