CIL's shares on Tuesday jumped 5.63% to Rs304.05 each on BSE in a flat market. In a statement issued on Wednesday, CIL said coal will be priced according to the heating property of each Kg of the fuel - referred as per unit of calorific value of coal, or Kcal/Kg, in industry parlance - instead of a band-based pricing followed till now. That resulted in the company posting an additional revenue of Rs 3234 crore in financial year 2016-17. The price of high grade coal has been reduced by 1-5%, whereas prices of nine grades have been increased by 3-22%, officials said. This along with the levy of evacuation charges of Rs 50 per metric tonne is estimated to increase the cost of generation for coal-based power plants by about 13-15 paise/unit, as per ICRA Ratings estimates. "In turn, assuming the average AT&C loss level at around 23% in the country, we estimate the impact on the cost of power supply per unit sold and retail tariffs (assuming full pass through by state regulators) at around 11 paise per unit or about 2% tariff hike".
