Coal production of Coal India FY 2003-2020

In 2020, India was the third largest producer as well as the third largest consumer of electricity. The energy sector in the south Asian country consumes about 70 percent of the domestic coal produced. Coal India Limited, a state-controlled mining company, was the largest coal producing company in the world. In 2020, the company had produced approximately 602 million metric tons of coal.

The company

Established in November 1975, the company had seven fully owned coal producing subsidiaries. By 2018, there were over 300 thousand employed personnel and operations were made through 81 mining areas across eight states in India. CIL has generated high revenues over the past few years.

Coal concerns

With sufficient coal reserves, and well-established coal producing companies, a switch to renewable energy could presumably take longer than anticipated. Although the government has made considerable efforts to switch to clean energy, the dependence on coal continues to persist within the country.
