Lowest closing level for Sensex, Nifty in more than a week

Weak global cues pushed Indian stocks lower for the second straight session. The barometer index BSE Sensex and the 50-unit S&P CNX Nifty reached their lowest closing level in more than a week. European stocks dropped on Thursday after data from China and Europe pointed to a sharp slowdown in manufacturing activity. The Sensex fell 66.19 points or 0.36%, off close to 131 points from the day's high and up 21 points from the day's low. The market breadth, indicating the overall health of the market, which was positive in early trade turned negative as the session progressed.

Coal India misses Q1 output target

Coal India Ltd (CIL) today blamed early rains and inclement weather in the eastern region for playing spoilsport in achieving its 98.7 million tonnes (MT) target for the first quarter.

Already plagued by a plethora of problems like delay in green clearances to its projects hurting production in the face of ever-widening demand-supply gap, the Maharatna company missed the April-June target by 2.4 MT.

'Given the production trend in April and May, we were quite hopeful of meeting 98.7 MT target for the first quarter. However, early and heavy rains hit most of our coalfields in the eastern belt making production as well as transportation tough,' Coal India Chairman N C Jha said.

With more than double average rainfall recorded at Eastern Coalfields Ltd (ECL), Bharat Coking Coal Ltd (BCCL) and Central Coalfields Ltd (CCL) in the region in June this year as compared to a-year-ago period, Jha said the company could achieve only 96.3 MT production.

Out of the eight subsidiaries of CIL, five are situated in the eastern region including Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd (MCL) besides the exploration arm Coal Mines Planning and Design Institute (CMPDIL).

Jha, however, exuded confidence that the Maharatna company would achieve the 452-MT target for the current fiscal.

'Our growth in the current month is fine. From the trend it seems the company will be able to achieve the target of 452 MT for the current fiscal,' he said.

Against a backdrop where more than 150 mining proposals by the company have been facing delays in environmental clearances, the world's largest coal miner had missed its last fiscal's production target by recording 431.325 MT output against the revised target of 440.20 MT.

CIL had blamed it to delays in clearance to its projects. The coal ministry, too, has repeatedly expressed concerns over such delays, saying green delays could result in a production loss of about 190 MT by March, 2012.

Meanwhile the demand-supply gap of the dry-fuel is projected at 142 MT this fiscal and is likely to reach 200 MT by 2016-17.

CIL, accounts for more than 82% of the domestic production.

CIL closed at Rs367.20, down by 0.70%, with a volume of 4.03 lakh shares on the BSE.

Sensex at one-week trough on caution ahead of RBI's policy review

Comments from Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee that inflation is expected to remain high between August-December 2011 pulled the market lower in what was a choppy trading session. The barometer index BSE Sensex reached its lowest closing level in more than a week. The Sensex was down 151.49 points or 0.81%, off close to 260 points from the day's high and up close to 30 points from the day's low. The market breadth was negative. Mukherjee's comments that India's exports growth may not be sustained on lingering concerns over the euro zone debt woes, also weighed on the sentiment.

Wipro slumped more than 4% on a muted bottom line growth in Q1 June 2011. Other IT stocks too fell. Dr Reddy's Laboratories (DRL) dropped as its Q1 result fell short of market expectations. Many other pharma stocks fell after disappointing Q1 results from DRL. FMCG stocks rose on defensive buying, with cigarette major ITC hitting a record high. Auto stocks fell on concerns higher interest rates could crimp sales of automobiles. Bank shares dropped amid worries high interest rates could hurt loan growth. Capital goods stocks also declined.
