 In order to strengthen coal transportation and coal production, Coal India Limited (CIL) transported 250 rakes of goods train through the railways on November 14, the highest ever in November. Out of these rakes, 223 rakes were sent exclusively to thermal power stations to ensure uninterrupted power.

The enterprise claimed that it has set a new record. The PSU said that it achieved the feat despite facing hardships due to sporadic rains in some of the coalfields. Normally, loading at such levels is attained from late December when the onset of favourable environment helps in ramping up coal production.
 
The PSU and the railways are jointly working to enhance loading target to 266 coal rakes per day.
 
The growth in coal despatch to power sector in August, September and October in this fiscal has been 20 percent, 21 percent and 18 percent respectively. It helped coal based power plants in meeting the spurt in demand of festive and paddy season, despite the drop in generation from hydro, nuclear as well as imported coal based plants.
 
CIL is poised to contribute load of 300 rakes through Indian Railways.
