Ten coking coal blocks auctioned by the Indian government over the past two years to various private miners and user industries will commence production in 2025, a ministry of coal statement said on Monday, February 27.

The ministry said that the peak rated capacity of these ten coking coal blocks is 22.5 million mt per year and it would contribute to achieving the domestic coking coal production target of 140 million mt per year by 2030.

At the same time, state-run Coal India Limited (CIL) has identified nine mines with peak rated capacity of 22 million mt per year to be brought into production, though no timeline has been disclosed.

The coal ministry has also identified four coking coal blocks and Central Mines Planning and Design Institute Limited (CMPDIL) will finalize a geological report for these blocks within the next two months, the statement said.
