The production in the first three months of 2020-21 dropped to 121.01 MT from 136.94 MT of coal produced in the April-June period of the previous fiscal, Coal India said in a filing.

Coal India's offtake also dropped to 41.61 MT in June from 48.98 MT in the corresponding month of the previous fiscal.
