Backward Integration - Coal Mining

The policy changes in the coal sector provided an opportunity to NTPC to enter captive coal mining business. Production is expected by 2014 in one coal block already allotted (Chatti-Bariatu in the state of Jharkhand). Five more blocks (40 MTPA) have been allotted to NTPC, Including two in JV with Coal India Limited. The total consolidated mineable reserves are 2055.35 MMT.

In addition to development of its own domestic coal mines, NTPC is exploring various other options including acquisition of stake in coal mines abroad for sourcing thermal coal for addressing fuel security concerns.
