Coal Production: Target vs Achievement

 Coal has been a major laggard among the infrastructure growth drivers. PIB released statistics on production target & achivement till dtae during the ongoing 11th 5-year plan period.

The target for production of coal is set for both public and private sector companies based on the guidelines for development of coal block and the terms and conditions of allocation letter.   The production target and the actual production from the allocated coal blocks for the current Five Year Plan (2007-2012) is given below:-

(Figures in Million Tonnes)

Year Production Target Actual Production
2007-08 23.93 21.245
2008-09 36.22 29.997
2009-10 37.11 35.46
2010-11 (Provisional) 35.23 (Projected) 26.921 (Upto Dec.2010)
2011-12 (Provisional) 38.25 (Projected)

The shortfall in meeting the production target is due to major constraints faced by the allocattee companies in achieving various milestones like purchase of geological report, forest and environment clearance from Ministry of Environment & Forest, obtaining mining lease and acquisition of land.  In case of unexplored coal blocks, grant of prospective licnece & completion of detailed drilling also takes time.
