NTPC Limited is targeting 26 million tonnes (mt) of captive coal production in 2022-23, greater by 86 per cent as compared to last year.

NTPC had produced 14 mt of coal from its captive mines during 2021-22. In 2022-23, the company is targeting a coal output of 15 mt from Pakhri Barwadis, 7 mt from Dulanga, 2 mt from Chatti Bariatu and 2 mt from Talaipalli mines. The growth will translate to NTPC meeting its 10 per cent annual requirement of 225 mt of coal through captive sources.
