Bhubaneswar: The coal miners of Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL) are geared up to end the financial year 2020 in style, setting a new benchmark of daily and monthly coal production in Coal India.
Despite challenging situations due to prolonged monsoon, bandhs and unseasonal heavy rains in the current fiscal, MCL recorded the highest one day production of coal by a subsidiary in the history of Coal India.
Carrying a responsibility to support smooth industrial operations by ensuring adequate supply of energy-rich coal, the coal miners of MCL withered unfavourable conditions to check the double digit negative growth.
With the return of conducive business environment in the second half of the financial year, the project teams bounced back successfully steering company from turbulent conditions.
Last push to further minimise the negative growth of 3.5 per cent as on date has been planned and the employees’ unions have appealed to all production teams to put extra efforts to maximise production in the balance 13 days of the current fiscal year.
The last two weeks of the year will witness our resolve to become a coal company registering highest production on day to day basis ever, beating sister subsidiary South Eastern Coalfields Limited (SECL).
While a series of Production-cum-Safety Days are being observed to motivate the project teams across Jharsuguda, Sundergarh and Angul district of Odisha, Mr BN Shukla, CMD, has appealed all the coal production and dispatch teams to give utmost priority to safety while operating in the mines.
