Coal supply by Singareni Collieries Company (SCCL) during April-December increased by 2.2 per cent to 36.4 MT compared to 35.6 MT in the corresponding period of previous fiscal, the data showed.
 
SCCL is a government coal mining company owned by Telangana and the Centre on 51:49 equity basis.
 
The overall dispatches of fossil fuel by CIL in the first nine months of the ongoing fiscal were at 391.7 MT against 389.2 MT in the same period of the previous fiscal.
