Now, Coal India’s small consumers can also choose preferred mines

Small and medium consumers of Coal India now have the option of choosing their preferred coal mines. They can also carry coal either on trucks to dessetinations or through a combination of rail and road and save on logistics.

Last week, the Coal India board cleared a proposal that will now allow consumers requiring a minimum of 2.5 lakh tonnes of coal a year to choose their coal mine. Earlier, the threshold for choosing specific mines was given to consumers with a minimum requirement of one million tonnes a year. Additionally, the source mine was to have a minimum production capacity of 2.5 mtpa.

At the last board meeting, the threshold of one million tonnes has been reduced to 2.5 lakh tonnes a year while the production capacity for eligible mines has been reduced to 1 million tonnes a year. This is expected to bring a larger number of mines under the scheme.
