KOLKATA: on Monday promoted as its marketing head, replacing who retired recently.
Prasad, who joined Coal India back in 1982 as a management trainee, was general manager marketing at the firm’s subsidiary .
Prasad joins as director marketing at a time when Coal India is having a hard time offloading its entire production because thermal power plants are flush with coal. Coal stocks at these power plants are about 34 million tonnes, enough for 35 days. On top of that Coal India has total stock of about 40 million tonnes.
