3.1 Sale of Coal

- Offtake of raw coal crossed 600 Million Tonnes (MT) landmark and a record offtake of 608.137 MT was achieved during 2018-19, surpassing the previous highest of 580.28 MT achieved during the last year by 4.80 %. In the process, 1.396 MT of coal stock was also liquidated during the year. Company-wise target vis-a-vis actual off-take for 2018-19 and 2017-18 are shown in Annexure-5.

- Despatch of coal and coal products during 2018-19 was at 608.300 MT, almost at 100% materialization of the target. Sector-wise breakup of dispatch of coal & coal products for 2018-19 against the target and last year’s actual is given in Annexure-6.

- A major thrust was made to bring the linked thermal power stations of the country out of critical stock position. A record dispatch of 491.54 MT of coal and coal products was made to power sector in 2018-19, exceeding the target of 489.01 MT and registering a growth of 8.2% over 454.224 MT dispatched in 2017-18. As the result, about 15 MT of coal was added to the stocks of the linked power station and none of them was in the critical stock list of CEA as on 31.3.2019, though as many as 30 of them were in the critical stock list as on 1.4.2018

- Improvement in stocks with power sector had provided the leeway to CIL increase the despatches to Non-Power Sector from the fourth quarter of 2018-19 onwards.

- Auction of coal through Spot e-Auction, Special Spot e-Auction, Special Forward e-Auction for Power and Exclusive e-Auction for NonPower schemes had continued during 2018-19 with better yields as compared to the previous year. Booking of coal in the auctions conducted during 2018-19 was against a premium of Rs. 8983 crores, at 77% over the notified price of coal. The booking of coal in the auctions conducted in 2017-18 was against a premium of Rs.6589 crores, at 50% over the notified price.

3.2 Long term demand creation

- Additional long term demands are created through linkages allotted through the below mentioned schemes formulated by the government:

A. Scheme for Harnessing and Allocating Koyala (Coal) Transparently in India (SHAKTI), for Power Sector notified by the government on 22.05.2017.

B. Auction of coal linkages to Non-Regulated Sector (NRS) notified by the government on 15.02.2016.


SHAKTI Policy contains provisions for coal supply for various categories of power plants fulfilling different criteria.

Until 2018-19, MoC has recommended signing of FSA with 8 Thermal Power Plants (TPPs) under the provisions of Para A(i) of SHAKTI for an Annual Contracted Quantity of 20.167 MT and FSAs have been signed with 5 TPPs for the ACQ of 16.967 MT. Also, on the recommendation of SLC(LT), FSAs have been signed under the provisions of Para B(i) of SHAKTI with 4 Central/State Gencos for an ACQ of 8.883 MT as on 31.3.201 9.

Further, linkage of 27.18 MTPA had been booked by the power plants in the auction of linkage conducted by CIL under the provisions contained under Part B(ii) of SHAKTI, out of which FSAs for 26.28 MTPA had been executed until 2018-19. The levellised discounts in tariff offered by these power plants for securing these coal linkages is expected to result in an annual saving of Rs.125 crores in tariff for the end users.

More long term demand through FSAs shall be added, as linkages are expected to be granted through the second round of linkage auction under Part B(ii) of SHAKTI and as grant of linkages under other provisions of SHAKTI are gradually being operationalized, the modalities of which are under finalization by the Ministry of Power / Ministry of Coal.

B. Auction of coal linkages to Non-Regulated Sector:

Fresh linkages to consumers in Non-Regulated Sector are granted through auction of linkages conducted in terms of the policy formulated by the government on 15.2.2016. The coal against the linkages secured in the linkage auctions are supplied under the FSAs to be executed for a period of 5 years, the tenure of which can be extended further for 5 years upon mutual consent. In case of Steel Sector, the FSA tenure has been increased from 5 years to 10 years, with provision of mutual extension by another 5 years.

In the events of Tranche-IV of the linkage auctions conducted during 2018-19, linkage of 33.18 MT/Per Annum was secured by the consumers at an average premium of 32.68% of the Notified Price. In the four tranches of auctions conducted between the years 2016-17 and 2018-19, total linkage of 78.36 MT/Per Annum had been granted at weighted average premium of 20.26% over the Notified Price. The additional premium shall be applicable throughout the tenure of these FSAs over the Notified Price applicable from time to time for the supplies.

3.3 Long term demand committed through FSAs:

Considering the FSAs executed earlier with the power plants under the provisions of NCDP and the FSAs executed under various provisions of SHAKTI, there exists operative linkage for a total quantity of about 572 MTPA with the Power Sector as on 31.3.2019, which is bound by long term supply commitments through FSAs.

The total commitments with Non Power consumers, including the ACQ against the operative FSAs executed under the earlier linkage regime under NCDP, linkages secured under the linkage auction policy for Non-Regulated Sector notified by the government on 15.2.2016 and the FSAs executed with State Nominated Agencies, stands at around 95 MT as on 31.3.2019.

To cope up with any scenario of deficit in availability of coal, supplies under the FSAs have been pegged at various levels of commitment.

3.4 Consumer satisfaction

- 3.4.1 Quality Management

For enhanced customer satisfaction, special emphasis has been given to Quality Management of coal from mine to dispatch point.

Now, all the consumers of CIL have the option for quality assessment of the supplies through independent third party sampling agencies. In order to monitor coal quality, a portal ‘UTTAM’ (Unlocking Transparency by Third Party Assessment of Mined Coal) has been launched by CIL to capture the entire cycle of sample. With the help of this portal, information of coal quality on regular basis will be accessible to both Coal Companies and Consumers.

As many as 46 coal testing laboratories across the subsidiary companies of CIL are now NABL accredited and accreditation process is underway in respect of another 09 labs.

As the result of conscious and continuous measures taken towards quality maintenance, the gap between the weighted average of declared and analyzed GCV of coal reduced remarkably to 275 Kcl/Kg in 2018-19 from 383 Kcl/Kg in 2017-18, narrowing down the variation well within one GCV band.

- 3.4.2 Linkage Rationalization

Linkage rationalization initiatives to reduce the cost of transportation of coal and cost of generation of power were continued during the year 201819 also. Under the ambit of the linkage rationalization policy notified by the government on 15.5.2018, sources of linkage for a quantity of 5.42 MT for the State / Central Gencos was rationalized in 2018-19, yielding a potential savings in transportation cost by about Rs.292 crs. Rationalization in respect of 2 IPPs is in the process, which upon implementation would result at a benefit of Rs.118 crs to end use consumers by way of reduction in power tariff as estimated by CEA. The total annual savings expected for the consumers due to linkage rationalization carried out until 2018-19 is around Rs.3700 crores.

3.5 Coal Beneficiation:

Presently, CIL is departmentally operating 16 Coal Washeries with a total coal capacity of 36.80 MTY. Out of which 12 are coking and balance 4 are non-coking with a capacity of 20.58 MTY and 16.22 MTY respectively. The total washed coal production from these existing washeries for the year2018-19 has been about 13 MTY.

To enhance the beneficiation capacity, CIL is setting up 18 new washeries with state-of-the-art technology in the field of coal beneficiation with an aggregate throughput capacity of 91.10 MTY. Out of these 18 new washeries, 9 are coking coal washery with a total capacity of 28.10 MTY. One coking coal washery with capacity of 1.6 MTY has been commissioned in 2018 on Build-Operate-Maintain concept. Another 9 washeries are being set up for non-coking coal with an aggregate capacity of 63 MTY.
