As we navigate through the current fiscal year of 2023-24, both CIL and NLCIL are on track to exceed their CAPEX targets yet again, the ministry of coal said.
With major CAPEX investments materializing in the last two months of the fiscal year, it is anticipated that both CIL and NLCIL will exceed their annual CAPEX targets, further bolstering India’s economic growth trajectory.
CAPEX is one of the crucial parts of the economic dynamics, which has a multiplier and trickle-down impact on the overall economy boosting consumption, demand and spurs industrial growth, creates employment and long-lasting infrastructure from which durable benefits accrue to the country over a long period of time.
Recently the Ministry of Coal has announced that for the month of December, the National Coal Index has shown a significant decline of 4.75% at 155.44 points compared to December 2022, where it was at 163.19 points.
This notable decrease indicates sufficient availability of coal in market to meet the growing demands, it had said.
The National Coal Index (NCI) is a price index that combines coal prices from all sales channels, viz. Notified Prices, Auction Prices, and Import Prices. It considers prices of coking and non-coking coal of various grades transacted in the regulated (power and fertilizer) and non-regulated sectors.
