The company has taken steps to achieve the target of 6 MTPA from its original schedule of four MTPA during the current year. Considering the high demand of coal, the company is taking all out efforts to augment the coal production of Talabira Mine up to 10 MTPA for the current year and up to 20 MTPA from next year onwards. This will not only provide fuel security to end use plants but also make available coal in the market.

The coal produced is being transported to its one of the end use plant, NLC Tamil Nadu Power’s 2 x 500 MW plant at Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu. This is a subsidiary of the company.
