Mahanadi coalfields loses 20 million tonne production due to strikes

Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd, one of the largest coal producing companies in the country, has lost about 20 million tonne of production so far this fiscal due to strikes and agitations at its mines.

This is one of the highest loss due to disruptions recorded by any Indian coal company, and the Sambalpur-based subsidiary of Coal India will now have to nearly double its present production pace to meet its annual targets, officials said.

Mahanadi Coalfields (MCL), which lost about 1.5 million tonne of production during a five-day strike last week, is presently producing 47 lakh tonne of coal per day on an average.
