The near-monopoly stock has been under pressure to increase production as coal supplies dwindled at power plants even as demand for electricity hit all-time highs driven by a spike in household expenditure.

This comes amid an ongoing heat wave and a pick-up in industrial demand, forcing many states to resort to power cuts in March-April.

In a statement, Coal India's spokesperson said:

  • CIL's production tempo is keeping up a consistent double-digit growth in FY23 so far and all efforts are on to continue the trend. What assumes importance is to have a matching evacuation infrastructure that can handle transportation of the increased output.

Note that despite having a monopoly, shares of Coal India that once traded at Rs 350 (in 2010), now trade at Rs 195 levels.

HCL Technologies: Q1 preview

As per an article in The Economic Times, HCL Technologies is likely to report a flat to single-digit year-on-year growth in profit for the June 2022 quarter despite an over 15% rise in net sales.

EBIT margin is seen falling at least 200 basis points on a yearly basis.

According to experts, HCL Technologies is expected to retain a 12-14% revenue growth guidance and an 18-20% EBIT margin guidance for the current financial year.

The management commentary on the product and platform business would be among key things to watch out for.

Electric Vehicle under Rs 600,000?

Homegrown solar company, Gensol Engineering, is aiming to make an electric car for less than Rs 600,000.

The company on Friday told investors that it had signed a term sheet to acquire an US-based electric vehicle manufacturing start-up which will provide the technical expertise to develop an electric car.

Gensol Engineering did not reveal the name of the US company or the price it paid for the acquisition.

Anmol Singh Jaggi, Managing Director of Gensol Engineering said:

  • We clearly believe that there is a need for a Rs. 0.5 - 0.6 m (on road price) electric vehicle.

    The Indian EV manufacturing industry needs a disruption and that can only happen if an e-car could be sold for as less as Rs. 0.5 m.  We have taken up that challenge.

Currently, the cheapest electric car on Indian roads is Tata Motors' Tata Tigor which costs at least Rs 1.24 m.
