The increase in coal supply to various sectors between 2016-17 to 2018-19 has been moderated by the Covid pandemic to the supply levels during FY 2016-17 and FY2017-18.
Coal India Limited and Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) have set a target of 670 MT and 68 MT of coal respectively for FY 2021-22.
Coal supply to the Cement Sector has hovered around 1.1% over the last five years. Considering the goal of USD 5 trillion Economy by 2025 and upcoming demand for infrastructure in line with the National Infrastructure Pipeline, allocation of coal to strategic sectors needs to be reconsidered and strengthened.
