Shares of Coal India surged in Tuesday's opening deals after the miner in a regulatory filing on Monday said that the board in its meeting held approved payment of interim dividend for FY22 at 9 per share of the face value of 10 as against 7.5 per share announced last year.

The PSU company has fixed Tuesday, December 7, 2021 as the record date for the purpose of payment of interim dividend on the equity shares for the financial year 2021-22. Whereas, the date of payment of interim dividend is on and from December 21, 2021, it added.
