New Delhi: The two-day old strike by coal workers across India was today called off, with the government and the unions reportedly reaching an agreement after a marathon meeting.

"The strike has been called off," All India Trade Union Congress leader Lakhan Lal Mahato said after a meeting with Coal Minister Piyush Goyal that lasted for over six hours.

The end of the strike midway bring relief to the power sector that has faced the prospect of fuel supplies drying up due to the closure of half of the country's coal mines during the strike.

Mr Mahato, however, did not share the details of the terms and conditions of the agreement reached between the government and the unions.

Indian National Mineworkers' Federation President Rajendra Singh also confirmed that the strike has been called off and an agreement with the government is being signed.
