MoC approves expanded coal production by SPL

The Ministry of Coal (MoC) had accorded permission to SPL to augment coal production from its Moher and Moher Amlohri extension coal mines to 17.2 mtpa during 2015-16. Earlier, in June 2015, the MoC had directed SPL to limit annual coal production to 16 mtpa. Meanwhile, the deallocation of the Chhatrasal coal mine in May 2015 remains unrevoked.
