TABLE-India's Dec coal output 52.6 mln T, flat vs year ago

Jan 29 (Reuters) - India produced 52.6 million tonnes of
coal in December, almost flat from a year earlier, and trailed a
target by 6.1 percent, provisional figures provided by a
government source showed on Tuesday.
    Coal output in India, the world's third-largest producer,
grew 5.6 percent from a year earlier to almost 380 million
tonnes between April and December 2012, the figures showed.
    State-run Coal India Ltd, the world's biggest
miner, produced nearly 308.9 million tonnes during the
nine-month period, continuing to account for about 80 percent of
the country's total output.
    India aims to produce 575 million tonnes of coal in the
2012/13 fiscal year that ends in March, the figures showed. So
far, it has achieved 66 percent of the current target. 
    Following is a table on India's coal production, in million
tonnes, between April and December versus the previous year.
