Coal India output rose 32% to 40.51 million tonnes in September, the company said in a stock exchange filing. Offtake, or sales to customers, rose 31.5% to 46.46 million tonnes last month
Coal India Ltd's output and sales grew by nearly a third during September from a year earlier, the company said on Thursday, as coal-fired power generation picked up and demand from smelters and other consumers increased.
State-run Coal India accounts for over 80% of the country's production and is the world's largest coal miner by output.
