3. COAL MARKETING
3.1 (a) of f-take of Raw Coal
Off take of raw coal continued to maintain its upward trend and reached 433.08 milliontonnes, surpassing previous highest figure of 424.50 million tonnes achieved during thelast year, i.e., an increase of 2% over last year. the of f-take achieved was 95.8% of theAnnual Action Plan Target. of f-take suffered heavily in most of the coal fields, due toexcessive rainfall in August-September'2011. Though there was an improvement from themonth of November, inadequate wagon availability till December'11 had an adverse effect onthe projected growth in of f-take. Desired level of off-take was also affected due to lesstransportation to sidings arising out of law & order problem in CCL and MCL fields.However, CIL has registered excellent performance during the last quarter, which helpedthe company achieve the overall satisfactory performance.
Company-wise coal of f-take:
Company-wise target vis-a-vis actual of f-take for 2011-12and 2010-11 are shown below:-
| || || || |
(Figs. in million tonnes)

Growth over last year
|Company ||Target ||Achieved ||% Achieved ||Achieved ||Abs. ||% |
|ECL ||34.00 ||30.83 ||90.7 ||29.74 ||1.09 ||3.7 |
|BCCL ||30.00 ||30.16 ||100.5 ||29.39 ||0.77 ||2.6 |
|CCL ||52.00 ||48.04 ||92.4 ||46.38 ||1.66 ||3.6 |
|NCL ||68.50 ||63.61 ||92.9 ||64.21 ||-0.60 ||-0.9 |

|CIL ||452.00 ||433.08 ||95.8 ||424.50 ||8.58 ||2.0 |
From above it may be seen that BCCL & SECL had not only outperformed theirrespective targets but also exceeded last year's level. Barring NCL, WCL and NEC all othercoal companies registered a positive growth in of f-take. of f-take from ECL & NCL wasaffected mainly due to less dispatch through MGR. Less transportation due to Law &order problem affected dispatch from CCL. of f-take from WCL received a serious set-backdue to MAHAJENCO's decision of non-lifting of coal through road-cum-rail mode by theirWashery Operator. Less transportation due to law & order problem coupled with fewerplacements of MGR rakes by Talcher STPS as well as less availability of railway wagonsaffected the overall of f-take of MCL.
(b) Sector-wise despatch of coal & coal products:

3.2 Despatches of coal and coal products byvarious modes:
Despatches of coal and coal products during 2011-12 went up to 432.95 million tonnesfrom 423.44 million tonnes registering a growth of 2.2 %. Overall dispatch by Road andRope/Belt (other modes) had been more than target though road dispatch at WCL suffered aserious set-backdue to MAHAJENCO's decision of non-lifting of coal through road-cum-railmode by their Washery Operator. MGR despatch was affected due to less placement of MGRrakes by Talcher STPS, CHP problem and unloading problem at NTPC-Kahalgaon TPS. MGR off-take of NCL could not materialize to its fullest potential due to mutual arrangementbetween Railways and NTPC for operating BOBR rakes on NTPC rail track thus reducing theavailability of MGR track for movement of MGR rakes and also due to inadequateavailability of locomotives for hauling MGR rakes. This apart, MGR despatch was alsoaffected due to preference given by NTPC for unloading of imported coal rakes, frequentderailment of MGR rakes and poor performance of MGR system at AnparaTPS.
Despatch of coal and coal products byvarious modes for the years 2011-12and 2010-11 isgiven below:

3.3 Wagon Loading
Sustained efforts and regular coordination with railways at different levels sawwagonloading increase by another345 boxes perday over last year .Overall materialization was96.1% of the target. Company wise performance shows that ECL, BCCL& NCL not onlyexceeded last years level of loading but also surpassed their target. Wagon loading at NECwas also more than the target. Major deviation from AAP target has taken place inKaranpura Field of CCL, Korba Field of SECL and both Ib and Talcher fields of MCL. theloading potentials of CCL, MCL & SECL-Korba could not be utilized due to inadequatesupply of empty wagons. In some of the coalfields like CCL-Karanpura and MCL-Talcher,desired level of rail despatch could not be achieved due to less transportation of coal tosidings arising out of law & order problem and obstruction/agitation by local peopleon various demands. Rail despatch at NCL could have been even better but for supply ofBOBR rakes moving in close circuit within Singrauli region and non-availability of Box-Nrakes.

3.4 Consumer Satisfaction:
i) In order to ensure enhanced customer satisfaction, special emphasis has been givento quality management. Steps were taken to monitor quality right at the coalface apartfrom bringing further improvements in crushing, handling, loading and transport system.
ii) CIL has built up coal handling plants with capacity of about 296 MT per annum so asto maximize dispatches of crushed / sized coal to the consumers. In addition, thewasheries at BCCL, CCL, WCL and NCL have adequate crushing / sizing facilities to the tuneof about 39.4 million tones.
iii) Measures like picking of shale / stone, selective mining by conventional mode aswell as by surface miners, adopting proper blasting procedure / technique for reducing thepossibility of admixture of coal with overburden materials, improved fragmentation of coaletc. are being taken for improving coal quality.
iv) Surface Miners have been deployed by CIL for selective mining at some of the minesto improve the quality of coal. Action is being taken for deployment of more surfaceminers in other mines where geo-mining condition permits. Already 31 Surface Miners havebeen deployed in MCL, CCL, ECL and SECL at opencast mines and are working satisfactorily.
v) Joint sampling system is in vogue for major consuming sectors e.g. power (utilitiesas well as captive), steel, cement, sponge iron covering more than 95%oftotal productionof CIL. On overall basis, large consumers having annual quantity of 0.4 million tonne ormore and having FSA have been covered for sampling. the achievement of grade conformity inrespect of sampling and analysis has been to the tune of 94.3% up to Dec'11 in respect ofsupplies to power sector during 2011-12. Consumers, covered under the agreed samplingarrangement are required to pay as per the analysed grade of coal. This system is workingsatisfactorily.
vi) Electronic Weighbridges with the facility of electronic printout have beeninstalled at rail loading points to ensure that coal despatches are made only after properweighment. for this purpose, coal companies have installed 168 weighbridges in the Railwaysidings and 478 weighbridges for weighment of trucks. Coal companies have also takenactions for installation of standby weighbridges to ensure 100% weighment.
During 2011-12, about 99% of coal despatches to power houses have been weighed ascompared to about 98.3% during the year 2010-11. Sized coal despatches to power housesduring 2011-12 had been 98.64% compared to about 98.6% during the year 2010-11.
3.5 Steps Taken Towards Liberal Marketing of Coal:
Status of implementation of different provisions under NCDP is as under:
i) At the end of Mar '12, against the quantity allocated by CEA of 306 million tonnesfor power stations, drawing coal on 31.3.09, total quantity covered under FSA had been301.45 million tonnes showing materialization of almost 98.5%. Regular follow up was madewith concerned power utilities to ensure that entire quantity gets covered under FSA.Apart from the above, new power stations (post NCDP) who are to draw coal through LOAroute followed by FSA/ MOU, quantity covered in such cases came to 22.64 million tonnesper annum. Further power stations having pre NCDP linkage is also drawing coal under MOUfor a quantityof21.06 million tonnes.
ii) Out of 1206 valid linked units other than power and steel plants with eligibleFSAquantityof64.77 million tonnes, 1188 units have executed FSAs for 64.14 million tonnes.
iii) for supply of coal to SME sector, 8 million tonnes was earmarked by CIL forallocation to agencies nominated by the State Govts/ UTs. During the current fiscal, 18states / UTs sent their nomination of 27 state agencies for the year 2011-12 of which 22state agencies have signed FSA for 3.95 million tonnes and drawing coal accordingly.
iv) After implementation of NCDP, 654 new consumers in power, sponge iron, Captivepower and cement sector were served notices with a request to deposit commitmentguarantee(CG), of which 551 units submitted CG. 551 units were issued LOA for completionof necessary milestones. 300 units completed milestones and executed FSA.
v) Under for ward e-auction scheme during the year ended Mar12, quantity allocated was7.55 million tonnes as against 5.61 million tonnes allocated in last year. Number ofbidders participated also went up to 464 from 264 in the last year. Quantity allocatedunder spot e-auction also maintained its rising trend. During the period under review,49.72 million tonnes of coal was allocated under spot e-auction to the successful biddersas against 46.56 million tonnes of coal allocated last year .Premium earned throughe-auction over notified price was 66.6%(5526.88 Cr.) as against 80.7%(4072.06 Cr.) of lastyear.
vi) Coal India Ltd. has converted to GCV(Gross Calorific Value) based system of coalgrading & pricing for non-coking coal as per Government notification with effectfrom01.01.2012fromearlierUHVsystem, which isan internationally accepted norm for gradingof coal.
3.6 Coal Beneficiation
In order to supply improved quality and sized coal, CIL operates 17 coal washeries witha total capacity of 39.4 Mty. Out of these, 12 are coking coal washeries with a totalcapacity of 22.18 Mty and 5 are non coking coal washeries with a total capacity of 17.22Mty. Considering the increasing demand for washed coal and drive for a cleanerenvironment, CIL has initiated action to establish 20 coal washeries with a total capacityof 111.1 Mty, out of which 6 are coking coal washeries with a total capacity of 19.1 Mtyand 14 are non coking coal washeries with a total capacity of 92.00 Mty in 1st phase.These washeries are scheduled to be commissioned during XII Plan period . Further, CIL isalso for mulating plan to set up more coking and non coking coal washeries in the 2ndphase for supply of washed coal to various consumers.
3.7 Stock of Coal, Coke etc.

4.5 XI Plan Performance
As per the XI Plan document All India coal demand growth, was envisaged at 9.52% (i.e.731 Mt) at the terminal year (2011-12), against actual growth of 5.7% in Rs. plan period.At the Mid-term Appraisal (MTA), envisaged growth was revised to 8.99%, i.e. 713.24 Mt .InAnnual Plan 2011-12 this was further revised to 649.87 Mt. Actual consumption was 635.62Mt (growth - 6.5%)
Domestic coal production was envisaged at 680 Mt (growth 9.56%), CIL's projectionestimated at 520.50 Mt (77% share), growing at 7.6%. At the MTA, this was re-assessed at630 Mt, CIL's share being 486.5 Mt (growth 6.15%). In the Annual Plan 2011-12, CIL's coalproduction target was revised to 447 Mt due to constraints faced by coal sector. Coalproduction of CIL grew at 3.84% (435.84 Mt). In the first three years of the XI Plan,CIL's coal production showed an increasing trend with a growth rate of over 6%, which wasreduced to 0.5% in the last two years on account delays in forestry & EnvironmentalClearances (FC & EC), delay in land acquisition and R&R issues and coal evacuationconstraints.
As per XI Plan Document, capital outlay of CIL was envisaged at Rs. 17,390.00 Cr.,which was revised to Rs. 16,090.68 Cr. at MTA. the actual capital expenditure was Rs.13,617.56 Cr.
4.6 Future Outlook
In the terminal year (2016-17), as per XII Plan Document, All India Coal demand growthrate has been envisaged at 7.09%, (980.50 Mt). Estimated Coal demand for 2012-13 is 772.84Mt.
In the TY of XII plan (2016-17) the envisaged indigenous coal production is 795.00 Mt.Out of this, CIL's projection is 615 Mt (envisaged growth rate 7.12%), 77% share of totalproduction. Out of this 30.2% is to come from existing mines, 54.2% from projects underimplementation and 15.6% from new projects to be taken up. On date 147 projects are underimplementation. Further 126 new projects are identified to be taken up in XII Plan, ofwhich 58 are spill-over projects of Rs. & XI Plans. Coal production target of CIL in2012-13 is 464.10Mt (growth 6.48%).
CIL has proposed a capital outlay of Rs. 25,400 Cr in XII plan plus an ad hoc provisionof Rs. 35,000 Cr for acquisition of assets abroad and development of the acquired coalblock in Mozambique.
