The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) had approved the methodology for auction of coal mines/ blocks for sale of coal. Under this, the highest bidder will be given mining rights and there are no restrictions on end-use. This move will allow the private sector to commercially mine coal and also boost both production and mining efficiency. Considering that almost half of the domestic coal reserves of 300 billion tonne, mostly non-coking coal, are yet unallocated, commercial mining can have far-reaching impact.
It is certain that participation of private miners in coal would increase much-needed competition; enhance productivity by facilitating the use of latest equipment, technology and services through higher investments. However, the benefits from increased private participation in coal mining, though, will depend on faster environmental clearances, availability of adequate evacuation infrastructure. Prudence will also be required from bidders to ensure successful commercialisation of India’s largest natural resource.
On behalf of ASSOCHAM, we take this opportunity to cordially invite your esteemed organization’s participation towards organizing the “India Coal Sector” on 14th February 2019 at Hotel Le-Meridien in New Delhi. The theme of the conference is ‘Augmenting Coal Production through Commercial Mining’.
