CCL touches 50MT

Headquartered in Ranchi, Central Coalfields Limited (CCL), a subsidiary of Coal India Limited (CIL), and a Miniratna Company, touched the 50MT mark by producing 50.146MT coal during the 2013-14 fiscal — a 2MT increase from the previous year. CCL also dispatched 52.119MT coal during the fiscal. “It was due to the dedication of our employees that the company achieved this feat despite several obstacles,” chief managing director (CMD) Gopal Singh said at a function hosted at company headquarters on April 1 to felicitate chosen operational areas and employees for good performance. However, CCL fell short of its targeted production of 53.5MT coal for 2013-14, which was set after CIL chairman S. Narsing Rao had visited subsidiary company in Ranchi in March 2013 and reviewed its performance. For 2014-15, CCL CMD announced the company’s production target would be 56MT and dispatch target 58.5MT

SAIL upturn

SAIL achieved 7 per cent growth in sales volume with 12.1MT (million tonnes) sold in 2013-14 fiscal compared to 11.3MT in 2012-13. The growth in domestic sales was backed by 28 per cent export hike, from 0.36MT in 2012-13 to 0.47MT in 2013-14. Continued stress on value-added steel production resulted in a 6 per cent growth of special steel — from 5.2MT in 2012-13 to 5.3MT in 2013-14. SAIL chairman C.S. Verma congratulated employees for their collective initiative at a time when the global steel industry was going through stiff challenges, Bokaro Steel Limited chief of communications Sanjay Tewary reported on April 3
