3. COAL MARKETING

3.1 (a) Off-take of Raw Coal

Off-take of raw coal continued to maintain its upward trend and reached 534.496 million tonnes for fiscal ended March 2016, surpassing previous highest figure of 489.377 million tonnes achieved during the last year, i.e., an increase of 9.2 % over the last year. The overall raw coal off-take achieved was 97.2 % of the Annual Action Plan Target. In the year 2015-16, all coal companies barring NEC could outperform their achievement of last year. BCCL, NCL & SECL, in addition, had also exceeded their target.

Company-wise target vis--vis actual off-take for 2015-16 and 2014-15 are shown under Annexure 6.

Offtake could have been more, but for the following reasons:

SECL: Less demand of higher grades of Korea Rewa coal.

ECL: Unprecedented heavy rain caused water logging in OCPs during monsoon affected production, transportation and despatch. Less Demand of higher grades coal of Raniganj & financial constraint of WBPDCL / DVC and regulated lifting by NTPC-Farakka / Kahalgaon TPP affected loading & off-take.

CCL: Intermittent Law & Order problem, inadequate demand and regulation in intake by up-country power stations of Haryana, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh had affected despatch. Logistics bottleneck at Amrapali-Magadh Mines had also come in the way of augmenting off-take.

WCL: Comfortable coal stock at power stations led to regulated lifting. TPPs were particularly reluctant to take coal from Cost Plus Sources.

MCL: Sporadic incidence of law and order problem & less supply of wagons against their indents affected MCL despatch. Less movement through MGR mode also affected overall dispatch.

Initiatives taken for enhancing off-take are as under:

• Regular co-ordination with Railway Board to optimize use of logistics resources available in the subsidiary coal companies, analyzing inputs of the subsidiaries to identify alternate source for coal movement wherever and whenever required to achieve overall sectoral targets and mitigating critical fuel requirement of consuming sectors, particularly power stations.

• Coordination with MOC for various long and short- term policy decisions to overcome coal movement constraints for power and non-power sector consumers and taking operational decisions for moving coal from various sources on contingent situations to meet critical requirements of consuming sectors, particularly power utilities etc.

• Periodic Meetings and follow ups with Power producers in addressing issues relating to coal movement.

• Source Radionalization of coal linkage for optimizing coal movement as per the requirement of the consumers and logistics.

• Logistics is one of the major hurdles in reaching coal to the consumers. Capacity constraints both in terms of track and rolling stock are coming in the way for achieving the requisite growth. In order to boost-up the rail transport system following initiatives have been taken:

o MoU signed for investment in procuring 2000 high capacity wagons for movement of coal in dedicated circuit.

o SPVs by the coal companies with the State Governments and Railways for creating rail infrastructure -- two SPVs have already been formed at Chhattisgarh for creating rail connectivity at Korba/Raigarh. Similarly, SPVs were also incorporated at Jharkhand and Odisha for similar initiatives on 31st August’2015.

o Three major last mile rail connectivity projects at Jharkhand, Odisha and Chhattisgarh have been brought under PMO monitoring mechanism to ensure commissioning as per the schedule.

o Special attention is given for improving coal distribution network for small and tiny consuming sectors. CIL organized meeting with State Governments to streamline the process of nominating distribution agencies by them. o Coal companies started supplying 100 mm crushed coal to its consumers w.e.f January’2016.

Ministry of Coal introduced the Scheme of Special Forward E-Auction for Power Plants who were in stress or facing short supply of coal for not having coal blocks or linkages. 14.5 Million Tonnes (MT) of coal was offered under this ‘Special Forward E-auction’ against which booking was 13.8 MT. A similar scheme for consumers in the non – power sector was also launched as Exclusive E-auction scheme for non-power. 1.5 MT coal was booked under this scheme as against 4 MT of coal offered.

The web portal "Coal Allocation Monitoring System" was launched on 17th March’2016 by Minister of State with Independent Charge for Power, Coal and New & Renewable Energy along with the officials from Ministry of Coal and Coal India Limited at New Delhi. The portal aims to ease the conduct of business for small and medium sector consumers having annual requirement of less than 4200 tonnes of coal. The portal will make the system of distribution of coal to such consumers through State Nominated Agencies, more transparent. It has the following advantages:

a. Ease of doing business for consumers.

b. Accountability on the part of the Govt. and its enterprises.

c. 24 x 7 access of information on supply and distribution of coal in public domain.

d. Online registration and feedback system for consumers for improving the system.

e. Transparent coal distribution.

f. State and consumer awareness.

g. Peer audit among stakeholders.

(b) Sector-wise dispatch of coal & coal products:

In the year 2015-16, CIL dispatched 534.624 MT of Coal & Coal Products against the target of 548.938 MT i.e., an achievement of 97.4%. CIL has dispatched 44.642 MT of coal and coal products more than last year with a growth of 9.1%.

408.751 MT of coal and coal products was despatched to the power utilities against the target of 430.677MT i.e., an achievement of 94.9%. This is 23.356 MT more than last year’s dispatch of 385.395 MT, resulting in a growth of 6.1%.

Sector-wise break-up of dispatch of coal & coal products for 2015-16 against the target and last year's actual is disclosed in Annexure 7.

3.2 Dispatches of coal and coal products by various modes:

Dispatches of coal and coal products during 2015-16 went upto 534.624 million tonnes from 489.982 million tonnes registering a growth of 9.1 %. Overall dispatch by Non-Rail mode had been 106.6% of the target. Growth in despatches via Rail mode was 8.5 % whereas in the overall Non-Rail mode it increased by 9.8 %. Road despatches increased by 14.5% compared to the previous year. Movement by MGR was 2.4% above last year. Despatches through other modes, like belt & rope also increased by 17.2 % compared to the last year.Dispatch of coal and coal products by various modes for the years 2015-16 and 2014-15 is disclosed under Annexure 8.

3.3 Wagon Loading

Overall wagon loading materialization was 91.3 % of the target. This was achieved due to sustained efforts and regular coordination with railways at different levels. The increase in loading over last year was of 18.23 rakes per day. Company wise performance showed that WCL outperformed its target. All the subsidiaries except NEC exceeded last year’s level of loading.

Wagon loading could have been even better but for the regulated lifting by Power Utilities almost in all the subsidiaries; less demand for higher grade coal from ECL and SECL, intermittent law and order problem in CCL and MCL also affected rail dispatch performance.

Wagon loading performance of 2015-16 vis--vis 2014-15 is disclosed under Annexure 9.

3.4 Consumer satisfaction

i. In order to ensure enhanced customer satisfaction, special emphasis is being given to quality management. Various steps are taken to monitor quality right at the coalface apart from bringing improvements in crushing, handling, loading and transport system.

ii. CIL has built up coal handling plant capacity of about 326 MT per annum so as to maximize dispatches of crushed/sized coal to the consumers. CIL is already supplying (-) 100mm sized crushed coal to all power plants w. e. f. 01.01.2016 except the pit head power plants.

iii. In addition, the Washeries at BCCL, CCL, WCL and NCL have adequate crushing / sizing facilities to the tune of about 36.8 million tonnes. CIL has also initiated action to establish 15 more coal washeries with combined capacity of 112.60 Mty.

iv. Measures like picking of shale/stone, selective mining by conventional mode as well as by surface miners, adopting proper blasting procedure/technique for reducing the possibility of admixture of coal with over-burden materials and improved fragmentation of coal etc. are being taken.

v. Surface Miners have been deployed by CIL for selective mining at some of the OCP mines to improve quality of coal. Action is being taken for deployment of more surface miners in other OCP mines where geo-mining condition permits their usage. Already 64 Surface Miners have been deployed in CIL opencast mines which are working satisfactorily.

vi. Joint/ Third Party sampling & analysis is in vogue for major consuming sectors e.g. power utilities, steel, cement, sponge iron covering more than 95% of total production of CIL. On overall basis, large consumers having annual quantity of 0.4 MT or more and having FSA have been covered under sampling. For the first time, sampling facility has been extended in special e-auction for power sector also.

vii. Subsidiary coal companies have already procured 121 Bomb Calorimeters for more accurate and transparent results of analysis of coal samples. Sampling and analysis at loading end for eligible customers availing such facility has been extended, based on which coal bills as per analyzed grades are being settled.

viii. Pursuant to the decision taken in the meeting with the Association of Power Producers during June 2014, on and above the existing system of coal sampling at the loading end, it was decided that power producers may also engage their Third Party Agency from a list of 25 empaneled agencies for taking part in drawing coal samples and analyzing the same. In view of above, PUs / IPPs have selected agencies w.e.f. Dec' 2014 onwards.

ix. MoC, vide letter no. 23011/48/2013-CPD dated 26.11.2015 has issued new guidelines on third party sampling at loading ends –Standard Operating Procedures (SOP); formulated in accordance with the decision taken in the meeting held on 28th October’2015 under the Chairmanship of Hon’ble MOS (I/C) for Power, Coal & NRE.

x. As per the new SOP, independent Third Party Agencies are to be appointed by the Central Institute of Mining and Fuel Research (CIMFR) by a transparent process for undertaking the work of sampling and analysis of coal at loading end on behalf of both the power (consumer) and the Coal Companies (supplier). CIMFR has already started the work of sampling and analysis of coal at loading end as per new guidelines of MoC at 13 (thirteen) loading points of CIL subsidiaries w.e.f. 01.01.2016 and in the process of starting the same at other loading points of all subsidiaries in phases for coal supply to Power sector.

xi. Electronic weighbridges with the facility of electronic printout have been installed at rail loading points to ensure that coal dispatches are made only after proper weighment. For this purpose, Coal Companies have installed 157 rail weighbridges in the Railway Sidings and 569 road weighbridges for weighment of trucks. Coal Companies have also taken action for installation of standby weighbridges to ensure 100% weighment.

xii. 24 Auto Mechanical Samplers(AMS) are also working in subsidiary coal companies for coal sampling for the bulk consumers eliminating chances of biasness in sampling process. Procurement of further AMSs is under process. The process has already been initiated to deploy Augur sampling for drawing more representative samples.

xiii. In order to ensure consumer satisfaction and resolve consumer complaints, special emphasis has been given to quality management and redressal of consumer complaint. On-line filing and redressal of complaints has been initiated Percentage of consumer complaints resolved is 99.68% [April 2015 to March 2016].

xiv. CIL has taken initiative to get NABL [National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories] accreditation of main laboratories of different subsidiary coal companies. Eleven Laboratories of CIL (Two in CCL, Four in SECL, Two in BCCL and Three in MCL) has got NABL accreditation in addition to the earlier one existing at WCL.

3.5 Marketing of Coal:

Status of execution of Fuel Supply Agreements and performance of e-auction

Supply of coal was made to various consumers including Power Sector under the applicable provisions of New Coal Distribution Policy. Due to overall deficit in availability of coal considering the projected coal production from domestic sources and commitments made through signing of FSAs/ issuance of Letter of Assurances (LOA), supplies under FSAs has been pegged at various level of commitments (trigger). Power sector being the major consuming sector having significant importance in the economy, supplies to power sector has been guided as per the various Government directives and polices.

(i) For power stations, commissioned on or before 31.03.2009, 306 Million Tonnes had been considered to be supplied through bilateral legally enforceable Fuel Supply Agreements (FSA) with a trigger level of 90%. The total quantity covered under FSA against the allocation as on March’16 was 305 Million Tonnes.

Apart from the above, 180 Letter of Assurances have been issued to power plants by subsidiary companies of CIL, as per the recommendations of various SLC (LT) Meetings about 433.80 Million tonnes. Further, as per Presidential Directives dated 16th April’2012 and revised directive dated 17 July' 2013, a list of Power Plants having an aggregate capacity of 78535 MW was notified for signing of FSA. A total 173 TPPs (149 cases having normal LOA and 24 cases having Tapering LOA), were listed with an aggregate capacity of 78535 MW. Till 31st March’2016, 164 FSAs have been signed. The balance FSAs could not be signed for the reasons not attributable to CIL. However, MOC Office Memorandum dated 30th June’2015 directed CIL that the existing tapering linkage FSAs ceases to exist and coal would be supplied to them under separate MOUs route till 31.03.2016 or until a policy is formulated, whichever is earlier.

Out of the plants having normal linkage, FSAs have been signed for an Annual Contracted Quantity (ACQ) of about 219 Million tonnes for the aggregate capacity of about 56000 MW having long term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) and qualify for commencement of coal supply subject to commissioning etc.

(ii) In addition, in terms of Presidential Directive dated 17 July’ 2013, coal is being supplied to power houses of 4660 MW having no fuel linkage with CIL on best efforts MOU basis on the condition that such supplies do not adversely affect the availability of coal for the identified plants of 78000 MW capacity. MOC Office Memorandum dated 30th June’2015 limits supply to such categories of plants till 31st March’2016.

15 ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT

15.1 Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)/Environmental Management Plan (EMP)

EIA/EMPs for all the new and expansion projects as per EIA Notification SO 1533 dated 14th September, 2006 of MoEF are prepared for peak and normative capacities and environmental clearance is obtained. During the year 2015-16, CMPDI has prepared a total of 16 Form-I and formulated 34 Draft EIA/EMPs. 23 environmental clearances were also obtained from MoEF for different Projects/Group of Mines, Washeries and Sand Mine Project of CIL during the year 2015-16.

15.2 Pollution Control Measures and their Efficacy

Coal India has been playing a proactive role in environment protection so as to ensure that its mining operations are carried out in an environmentally compatible manner. Pollution control measures are taken concurrently with mining operations for maintaining acceptable levels of major physical attributes of environment namely air, water, hydrogeology, noise, land & nearby population.

(A) Air Pollution Control Measures:

Dust being generated during drilling, blasting, loading, transportation of coal for which Coal India Ltd. takes various initiatives to mitigate the same based on the Environmental Management Plans (EMP) already prepared before commencement /enhancement of production from coal mines. This EMP is prepared after assessing the impact on existing environment and forest due to coal mining projects through Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) study of each project. The air pollution control measures are as follows:

• Suitable water spraying systems for arresting fugitive dust in roads, washeries, CHPs, Feeder Breakers, Crushers, coal transfer points and coal stock areas are being installed. Mist spray systems have been introduced along conveyor routes, transfer points and on bunkers. Mobile water sprinkling has been provided in all the haul roads of OC mines. In addition to these, the projects are enhancing the water sprinkling through engagement of contractual water tankers. Automatic sprinklers have also been installed in CHPs. Besides these, following steps are taken:

a) Mobile sprinklers have been deployed along haul roads so as to control dust generated by truck movement and dumpers.

b) Optimum loading of coal trucks to avoid spillage on roads.

c) Covering of coal trucks by tarpaulin is a practice being followed to avoid spillage of materials during transport.

d) Blacktopping, strengthening of coal transportation roads are regularly and scientifically done.

e) Plantation in the mining activity areas along roads to create green belts in and around the mines. Plantation along avenues and around mines are also being carried out.

f) Switching to eco-friendly mode of transport: In order to reduce the dust pollution due to road transportation, eco-friendly measures are being adopted. Coal to thermal power stations who consume more than 80% of thermal coal, is transported by rail / series of belt conveyors to thermal power stations & rail heads are constructed to make rail head available nearer to mine to reduce road transportation. CIL have constructed / are constructing integrated CHP for rapid loading wagon and trucks.

g) Covered conveyors are also adopted for transportation of coal to thermal power plant in an environment friendly way in some of the mines. The sides of CHPs are also covered by side cladding with GI Sheet to control pollution at source.

h) In order to prevent dust at source itself, use of dust extractors / wet drilling systems are being undertaken.

i) Controlled blasting / habitation away from the mines have been introduced as far as possible.

j) Adoption of modern technologies like Surface Miners at different subsidiaries of CIL, which generates lesser air borne pollution for carrying out mining activities as compared to conventional methods as drilling, blasting & use of explosives are eliminated. During the year 2015-16, CIL has produced about 44% (234.652 M Tes) of its production from open cast mines through Surface miners. Continuous miners contributed about 3.333 M Tes of production from underground mines.

k) Ambient air quality in and around the mine site is being monitored fortnightly. There are required numbers of ambient air quality monitoring stations, as stipulated in environmental rules and regulations which are being monitored on fortnightly basis as per Environment (Protection) Act, 2006, and reports are regularly submitted to SPCBs and MOEF.

l) Continuous Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Stations (CAAQMS) are installed / being installed in large mines of CIL.Continuous Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Stations have been installed at 4 locations in SECL. CAAQMSs are under process of installation at locations 3 in BCCL, 1 in WCL & 10 in NCL. CIL has agreed to install 16 CAAQMS in the different cities of country as decided by CPCB.

(B) Mine Water Management:

Water which pumped out from the underground and opencast mines are contaminated with suspended particles. Some small quantity of water being contaminated during washing and cleaning of HEMM. CIL also takes initiative by treating these water. The treated water is being supplied to the local villages after mine consumption, Quality of the final effluent is monitored in terms of the relevant Indian standards.

(C) Noise Pollution Control Measures:

For control of noise pollution, following measures are adopted:

i) Proper maintenance of equipment to minimize vibration.

ii) Green belt provided around the mine as well as residential area.

iii) Controlled Blasting & blasting in only day time.

iv) Use of Surface Miner, Continuous Miner & High Wall mining which extract coal without blasting.

iv) Ear Muff or Ear Plugs provided to Workers at highly noisy areas.

(D) Land Reclamation:

Reclamation of the mined out areas and external OB dumps is a major environmental mitigatory activity taken up by Coal India Ltd. In all new mines, reclamation of mined out areas being done as per the Environmental Management Plan approved by MoEF and back filling of the OB material in the mine voids is a part of the mining operation cycle. Topsoil preservation, storing and use in the plantation areas of the reclaimed areas are being done in the opencast mines wherever necessary. Concurrent reclamation and rehabilitation of mined out areas (subject to technical feasibility as per geo-mining conditions) are taken for gainful land use. Opencast mines are filled up with overburden extracted during the process of extraction of coal and after technical reclamation is completed, plantation is carried out which is termed as biological reclamation.

• Eco-restoration: For effective Bio- reclamation of disturbed land, scientific studies are carried out to select suitable species of plants for each coalfield and sustainable sequence of reclamation from grass to shrubs to trees. Forest Research Institute (FRI) have been engaged by CIL for sharing their expertise in the field of eco-restoration in the reclaimed areas. ECO restoration site developed in Damoda, Tetulmari of BCCL, with technical guidance of FRI.

• Eco-park in Reclaimed land: Eco Parks have been developed in many of the mined out areas of CIL (Gunjan Park of ECL, Ananya Vatika of SECL, Nigahi of NCL, Sauner of WCL etc.).

• Monitoring of Reclamation: CIL introduced state-of-the-art Satellite Surveillance to monitor land reclamation and restoration for all opencast projects. The land reclamation and rehabilitation operations are being monitored by Satellite Surveillance. 50 major OCPs excavating more than 5 MM3 (Coal+OB) per annum are being monitored every year while remaining OCPs excavating less than 5 MM (Coal+OB) per annum are being monitored every 3rd year. This gives a clear picture of reclamation, which otherwise is difficult to accurately estimate.

• Mine Closer Plan: Mine closure plan is an integral part of the project report prepared by CMPDIL for Coal mines after exhaustion of reserves of a mine. This progressive mine closure plan also forms a part of the EIA/EMP prepared and submitted to MOEF for Environmental Clearance. The progressive reclamation of mined out areas are inbuilt in the project cost and is implemented accordingly. After exhaustion of reserves, statutory obligations in respect of closure are also followed. CIL is practicing mine closure very effectively .CIL is committed for restoration of abandoned / mined out areas in a socially acceptable & environment friendly manner.

(E) Strive for continual improvement in environmental performance by setting targets, measuring progress and taking corrective action.

CIL has engaged Indian Council of Forestry Research & Education (ICFRE), Dehradun for Environmental Audit of 20 OC Mines of CIL which is intended for third party inspection, verification of the existing levels of pollution vis-a-vis the laid down standards and to delineate the compliance status of major projects in addition to the inspection carried out by the statutory authorities like CPCB/SPCB etc. ICFRE will recommend, if considered necessary for supplementary actions to be taken in order to further improvement of environmental performance of identified CIL mines

CIL has signed an MoU with National Environmental Research Institute(NEERI), Nagpur on 3rd Dec. 2015 to carry out studies, monitoring and collaborative research work for "Sustainable Coal Mining in CIL".CIL is in the process of finalization of Carbon assessment study in SECL and NCL through NEERI. NEERI is also studying on the effectiveness of supplying de-shaled/dry-beneficiated / washed coal (reduction in ash content by 5-6%) to power plants following all pollution control measures.NEERI will submit environment management plan for mitigation of impact on regional environmental quality due to supply of deshaled / dry –beneficiated coal to power plants in context of prevailing pollution control practices.

(F) Solar Energy/ Energy efficient Initiative by Coal India Ltd:

CIL has signed an MoU with Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) to promote energy efficiency provisions in CIL and its subsidiary companies.

To promote, Green Initiatives taken by GoI, CIL has submitted Green Energy Commitment letter to MNRE for developing 1000 MW Solar Power Projects during 2014-19. For implementation of these projects, CIL has signed an MoU with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).

In the 1st phase, CIL is going to set up 2x100 MW Solar Power Plants in the state of Madhya Pradesh. In the 2nd Phase CIL is going to develop a capacity of 600 MW in the Solar Parks of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal and Maharashtra for which NIT has already been floated by SECI.

CIL’s initiatives has resulted in installation of 2.0 MW capacity , 0.19 MW capacity and 0.14MW Solar PV power plants in MCL, Burla ; CMPDIL, Ranchi and CIL HQ at Kolkata respectively.

15.3 ISO 14001 System

The implementation, certification and re-certification of different units of CIL against ISO: 14001 (Environmental Management System) is continuing. As on 31st March’2016, a total of 29 units and two companies (MCL & NCL) are certified as per ISO: 14001 standards.

With the success of a companywide Integrated Management System (IMS) in MCL & NCL, the transition from unit wise certification to the companywide Integrated Management System has begun in ECL, CCL & BCCL during 2015-16. It is expected that by April, 2017 ECL, CCL & BCCL would be able to get certifications for companywide IMS which includes ISO: 14001.

15.4 Assessment of Impact of Coal Mining in different coalfields

Vegetation cover mapping of six coalfields viz. Karanpura, East Bokaro, West Bokaro, Korba, Bander and Singrauli coalfields based on satellite data have been completed during the year 2015-16 for assessing the regional impact of coal mining on land use / vegetation cover in the span of 3 years to take remedial measures required, if any.

15.5 Resettlement & Rehabilitation Policy of CIL

With changing aspirations of Project Affected Persons (PAPs) and for faster acquisition of land, Resettlement & Rehabilitation Policy of CIL was revised in 2012 making it liberal and PAP friendly with more flexibility to the Board of Subsidiary Companies.

The Policy provides for conducting baseline socio- economic survey to identify PAPs enlisted to receive R&R benefits as well as to formulate Rehabilitation Action Plan (RAP) in consultation with PAPs and State Govt.

The R&R Policy of Coal India Ltd., provides for payment of land compensation and solatium, employment or lump sum monetary compensation and annuity, compensation for home-stead, lump sum payment in lieu of alternate house site, subsistence allowance to each affected displaced family etc.

15.6 Mine Closure Plans

In terms of the revised guidelines issued by Ministry of Coal (MoC) in 2013, CMPDI has prepared 37 mine closure plans for CIL mines during the year. Quick comments on 28 mine closure plans for coal blocks sent by MOC were also prepared and sent to MoC during the year.

16 COAL BED METHANE (CBM) / COAL MINE METHANE (CMM)

16.1 Collaborative commercial development of CBM in Jharia & Raniganj coalfields by the consortium of CIL & ONGC.

The Govt. has allotted two CBM blocks in 2002 namely Raniganj North CBM block in Raniganj Coalfield and Jharia CBM block in Jharia coalfield to the consortium of ONGC & CIL on nomination basis for commercial development of CBM. CMPDI is implementing the projects on behalf of CIL. ONGC is the Operator for both CBM blocks and carrying out the project works as per the provisions of contractual agreement with the Govt. of India and Operating Agreement entered into between ONGC & CIL. On completion of CIL part of Minimum Work Programme by CMPDI and Pilot Appraisal activity by ONGC, Field Development Plan (FDP) was formulated by the Operator i.e. ONGC for both the CBM Blocks.

The FDP for both the CBM Blocks were approved by Govt. of India in July 2013. Petroleum Mining Lease (PML) for Jharia CBM Block has been granted by State Government of Jharkhand in July, 2015. However, works of Field Development Phase in Jharia CBM Block could not be started due to non-availability of Environmental Clearance (EC). In Raniganj North CBM Block also, the work of Field Development Phase could not be started due to non-availability of PML & EC. Further, there are certain issues of overlap of Bengal Aerotropolis Project Ltd. (BAPL) infrastructure development & few Coal Blocks in assessed area of Raniganj CBM Block. Matter has been taken up at appropriate level for resolving the issues.

16.2. CBM related studies:
