Govt to take various steps to boost coal supplies: Reports 13/02/2018 11:29

According to reports, the government has decided on various steps including the use of dedicated rail transportation and setting up of power projects only within 500 km from coal mines in order to boost coal supplies to power plants.

As per reports, the Government has also decided that all power plants within 20 km from pit-head of coal mine will construct elevated closed belt conveyors within next 2 years. The steps were finalised at a meeting headed by Power Minister R K Singh.

Commenting on the issue, an Official told the media, “As per the estimates on the basis of power consumption growth, the requirement of domestic coal in 2018-19 would be about 615 million tonnes, which means that 288 rakes of coal per day would be required from Coal India Ltd (CIL).”

“As per the steps decided, plants within 40 km from pithead are mandated to construct MGR system within 3 years. The MGR or merry-go-round is a closed-circuit dedicated rail transportation system between the production and consumption points,” he added.
