Coal India’s allocation of e-auction to the power sector increased 8.4 percent in April-August

The purpose of allocation of coal through e-auction is to make coal available to consumers who want a long-term assured supply of coal for a year.

New Delhi, Coal India’s allocation of coal through e-auction to the power sector in April to August increased by 8.4 percent to 79.4 million tonnes.

This information is given in the monthly statement given by the Ministry of Coal to the Cabinet. The public sector company had allocated 73.2 lakh tonnes of coal to the power sector through e-auction in the same period of last financial year.

Coal India said that no coal was allocated under the scheme in August. The company was allocated 6.2 lakh tonnes of coal to the power sector in August 2019-20.
