The supply of coal by Singareni Collieries Company (SCCL) during the April-November period was almost flat at 31.3 MT against 31.1 MT in the year-ago period.

SCCL is a government coal mining company jointly owned by Telangana and the Centre on a 51:49 equity basis.

The government, in October, had said that there were no plans to cut down coal production as the demand had already picked up.

CIL, which accounts for over 80 per cent of the domestic coal production, is eyeing 598 MT production in 2016-17. CIL has a target to produce 1 billion tonnes of fossil fuel by 2020.
