Narsing Rao, CMD, Coal India

Coal India , has confirmed that 15 FSAs have been signed with the power companies but even in the best possible scenario, Coal India will not be able to supply above 65% for the new FSA requirement. Negotiations are on between the company and related ministries to resolve the issues, reports CNBC-TV18.

Narsing Rao, chairman and managing director, Coal India, said, "our ministry has written to the coal ministry requesting them to advice Coal India to restore the old FSAs with a modified trigger level from 90% to 80%. We have our own constraints. This year, at a best possible production and off take target, we possibly can only meet up to 65% of the FSA or Annual Contracted Quantity Requirement (ACQ). We have a target growth rate of 6.8% for this year. Despite that, we would only be able to meet 65% of the coal requirements of the power sector. This is the real crux of the problem."
