This was despite provisioning Rs. 8,153 Crores in the accounts in 2022-23 towards wage revision of CIL’s non-executive manpower.

Coal India Limited PBT and PAT for Q4

Both PBT and PAT have shrunk by 18%, compared to the same quarter of FY’22 primarily due to increased provision towards the wages in NCWA-XI. PAT would have been the highest-ever profit in any quarter had the provision not been made.

CIL lifted its profit into higher orbit despite the company capping its coal prices for over the past five years amidst rising input costs, especially diesel and explosives and increased wage costs due to provisioning in the accounts.
