Kolkata: Coal India on Tuesday reported that its production during July declined marginally to 36.64 million tonnes (mt) as compared to 36.74 mt produced in the same month last year.



According to the state miner's provisional data, it produced 155.48 mt of coal during the first four months of the current financial year, down by 4.3 percent from 162.38 million tonnes produced during the year-ago period.

Its off-take grew by 4.1 percent in the April-July period to 181.69 mt as against 174.66 mt sold in the corresponding period and in July only, its off-take was at 44.33 mt, up by 6.89 percent from 41.47 mt in the year-ago month.

Coal India's two subsidiaries -- South Eastern Coalfields Ltd (SECL) and Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd (MCL) -- contributed to majority of its July production by generating 9.95 mt and 10.24 mt of coal respectively.

The off-take from SECL during the last month was at 11.93 mt while MCL achieved 11.09 mt of sales.
