Ministry of Coal identified four coking coal blocks to increase coal production

Dec 29: To increase the coking coal production, the Ministry of Coal has identified four coking coal blocks, for which the Central Mine Planning and Design Institute (CMPDI) will also finalize Geological Report (GR) in the coming months. To step up the domestic raw coking coal supplies, these blocks can be offered to the private sector in subsequent rounds of the auction.

With these measures undertaken by the Ministry under Aatmanirbhar Bharat, domestic raw coking coal production is likely to reach 140 Million Tons (MT) by 2030. Coal India Ltd (CIL) has planned to increase raw coking coal production from existing mines up to 26 MT and identified nine new mines with a Peak Rate Capacity (PRC) of about 22 MT by FY 2025. Also, CIL has offered eight discontinued coking coal mines, out of the total 30 discontinued mines, on an innovative model of revenue sharing to the private sector with a PRC of 2 MT.
