In a video conference with the area general managers here on Monday, SCCL directors S Chandrashekhar (operations) and N Balaram (finance, personnel, planning and projects) instructed the officials to ensure that the coal production does not get affected due to the ensuing holiday season of Dasara and Bathukamma festivals. They wanted the authorities to increased the coal production to upto 1.9 lakh tonnes per day and transport at least 34 rakes to the respective power stations. Singareni is currently supplying about 1.5 lakh tonnes i.e. 86 per cent of its total production to thermal power plants every day.

The SCCL officials allayed the apprehensions of a coal crisis in Telangana State and informed that despite reports of a severe shortage of coal across the country, Telangana has adequate quantity of coal reserves. The company is also making efforts to increase its coal production and improve transportation to support all other thermal power stations in Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka.

During the first half of the current financial year of 2021-22, the Singareni Company supplied about 271.46 lakh tonnes of coal against its target of 273.54 lakh tonnes to the power sector and achieved 99.24 per cent of its target.
