The Coal Ministry has said that there is sufficient coal stock available with the coal companies in the country. The coal stock in Coal India Limited is 56.7 million tonnes and in Singareni Collieries Company is 43 lakh tonnes, the ministry said. It said, the coal stock in captive coal blocks is around 2.3 million tonnes.

The government has also decided to cancel several passenger trains to prioritize the movement of coal rakes across the country to meet the demand of thermal power plants. Trains have been canceled in non-priority areas and less busy routes.

Coal Ministry said, there has been an increase of 27.2 percent in coal production by Coal India Limited in this month as compared to the same period last year. On the other hand, coal dispatch has increased by 5.8 per cent.

The coal stock at railway’s good shed siding, washery siding and port is about 4.7 million tonnes and is ready to be taken to thermal power plants immediately, it said. Indian Railways is fully prepared to transfer coal stocks to power generation companies across the country and is increasing the availability of rakes, the ministry said.

Coal India Limited has offered 5.75 million tonnes of coal to state and central power generating companies and 53 lakh tonnes has been agreed to be booked by coal generating companies, the Coal Ministry said.
