Its off-take for November only stood at 50.67 mt, exceeding the target of 50.48 mt for the last month.

CIL, which has a target to produce 347.69 mt during the period, clocked a 1.8% growth in production from 323.57 mt produced in the same period last year, its provisional data showed. 

According to data, the miner produced 51.29 mt of coal in November only, missing the production target of 54.91 mt for the month by 7%.
