Coal India could have helped slash production cost by 12 percentage
Coal India Ltd could have helped power companies save their production cost by 12 per cent, or 35 paise a unit, if it had kept coal prices lower by using the money that it would pay as interim dividend, power sector executives said. The state-run monopoly coal supplier declared a dividend of Rs.29 a share. The central government will get close to Rs.20,000 crore in the form of dividend.
