The drop in profits is mainly on the back of suspension of mining operations at NEC (North Eastern Coalfields) in Assam.

“The functional director of Coal lndia Ltd vide its 229th meeting dated June 5, 2020 has ratified the decision to temporarily suspend the mining operation at NEC (in Tikak, Tipong and Tirap Colliery) from June 3, 2020 till forestry and other statutory clearances are obtained and mines are made operational. The management is reviewing the impact of the above temporary suspension. Decrease in production and offtake is mainly due to suspension of such mining operation,” the company said in the notes to accounts to stock exchanges.

Shares of Coal India closed at ₹142.25, down 0.73 per cent on the BSE on Tuesday.
