Investment to the tune of Rs 1,536 crore has been made so far,” an official statement said.
Coal consumers body seeks renewal of rake-based supply to non-power sector
The Coal Consumers Association of India (CCAI) has made a plea to the government to resume rake-based supplies to the non-power sector in a bid to maintain cost competitiveness and sustain operations. Despite Coal India’s production and despatches improving considerably this year, the supply of dry fuel to the non-power sector continues to languish below optimal levels amidst spiralling costs. This situation has led to the non-power sector relying on road-based supplies, in turn leading to soaring costs for its constituent industries. Converting rail quantities to road offtake often attracts higher premiums than those already paid to Coal India Ltd (CIL) for rake-based supplies, CCAI said.

Stocks in Action
CAMS: CAMS is the largest registrar and transfer agent (RTA) for mutual funds. The mutual funds (MF) industry is going from strength to strength with asset under management (AUM) crossing a record high of Rs 40 lakh crore as of November, almost a 2-fold increase in a span of 5 years. As of September, CAMS serviced Rs 27.1 lakh crore of MF AUM. The growth in the AUM serviced by CAMS has been largely led by equity assets in the past one year, resulting in the improvement in the proportion of high fee-earning equity assets to 45% by September ’22 from 39% in September ’21.
In a duopolistic industry, CAMS enjoys a 69% market share in terms of MF assets serviced as of September. But the high market share is not the only reason to consider CAMS. The business has high entry barriers and there are negligible risks to its existing market share which are the real moats of the business. Other business strengths include annuity-like revenue stream and a cash-rich balance sheet. It enjoys a high operating leverage, implying a gain from technological advancements and higher volumes. Overall, rising financial savings and digitisation are going to shape the future of financial services in the country. CAMS fits well into these themes. Positive on CAMS given the strong tailwinds for the MF industry and the vantage positioning of CAMS.
