It is the strong rise in Coal India production that is improving the company’s earnings prospects. The strong power demand has meant that the Coal India supplies remain strong to the power sector.

The good domestic demand and rise in international coal prices means that Coal india’s e-auction realisations are improving its earnings prospects.
