Mumbai | Updated on February 28, 2011 Published on February 28, 2011

Shares of state-run Coal India Ltd (CIL) soared by over 11 per cent in early trade on the BSE today as investors cheered its move to hike prices of its produce by about 15 per cent on average.

CIL had effected the price hike with the goal of achieving some parity between domestic and international prices.

Buoyed by the development, shares of CIL jumped by 11.15 per cent to touch a one-month high of Rs 324.45 apiece on the Bombay Stock Exchange.

In a similar manner, the scrip witnessed a 11.01 per cent surge to Rs 324.90 on the National Stock Exchange.

The price hike will help CIL partially mitigate its rising operating costs, including a huge outgo toward salaries for around 3.85 lakh employees.
