MCL breaks 6 lakh tonne daily coal production barrier


Sambalpur: Setting a new record in daily coal production, Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL) produced 6.36 lakh tonne dry fuel on March 21, which is the highest ever by any coal company in the country.

Congratulating the Team MCL for surpassing the six lakh tonne production figure in a day, Chairman and Managing Director AK Jha on Thursday said the synergy of efforts from top to the lowest ranks working in the mine projects have made the company produce 6.36 lakh tonne in a day.

“I am proud of my team and confident that we can achieve even higher targets,” said the CMD.

MCL, a flagship subsidiary of Coal India Limited, is consistently growing and achieving new milestones despite several operational constraints.
