NTPC registers 62 per cent growth in coal production from its captive mines

NTPC Limited has demonstrated an increasing trend in coal production from its captive mines.

The coal production in this fiscal year till Aug 2022, was 7.36 million tonne (mt), posting a robust growth of 62 per cent when compared to 4.55 mt achieved in the same period of last year. With meticulous planning, resource mobilisation, and regular monitoring, NTPC could achieve substantial growth even during the monsoon period, so far, and is hopeful of maintaining similar growth. The coal dispatch from NTPC’s captive mines has been 7.52 mt against 5.47 mt in 2021-22 for the same period registering a growth of 37 per cent. NTPC has taken various steps to augment the coal production from its coal mines. The engagement of high-capacity dumpers as well as an increase in the existing fleet size of excavators has allowed the operational mines to increase their production.
