NEW DELHI Feb 14 Coal India Limited,
the world's biggest miner, will miss its production target for
2012/13 by 5-6 million tonnes, but will meet its supply target
of 470 million tonnes by drawing down from stocks, its chairman
said on Thursday.
The production target is 464 million tonnes for the current
fiscal year that ends in March.
The state-run miner, which produces about 80 percent of
India's total coal output, has a stockpile of 47 million tonnes
as of today, he said, nearly 24 million tonnes lower than its
opening stocks at the beginning of this financial year.
