Coal Reserves

                During the process of formulation of Annual Plan, Ministry of Coal/Planning Commission assesses sector-wise overall demand for coal in the country. Such demand is not assessed on State-wise, Grade-wise and coal-field-wise basis. Based on such assessed demand, company-wise coal supply plan is formulated by Ministry of Coal for various sectors. Therefore, State-wise Grade-wise and coal field-wise demand is not available with CIL.  However, State-wise details of dispatches of coal and coal products for Power Utility sector for the last three years are tabled below:
State-wise details of despatch of coal and coal products from

He said that as per the latest National Inventory on Indian Coal Resources published by Geological Survey of India, as on 01.04.2011, the total coal resources assessed are about  285862.21  Million Tonnes, of which 114001.60 Million Tonnes or about 40% are proved reserves. Exploration is a continuous process and new resources get added every year. The current level of production of about 550 Million Tonnes.

The steps taken by the coal companies to reduce the ash content in coal supplied to the various industries  are furnished below:

(i) Coal companies of CIL have been supplying a part of the coal produced after wash in with reduced ash content to its various consumers i.e. steel plants, thermal power plants, cement plants, fertilizer plants, etc. from its 17 coking and non coking coal  washeries with a total capacity of 39.4 Mty (coking coal, 12 nos.-22.18 Mty and   non coking coal, 5 nos.-17.22 Mty).

(ii) CIL has initiated action to set up 20 coking and non coking coal washeries with a  total capacity of 111.1 Mty in 1st phase ( coking coal,6nos.-19.1 Mty and non coking coal, 14 nos.- 92 Mty) for supply of washed coal to the various consumers. Thereafter, to enhance the washed coal supply to the consumers, CIL is also formulating plan for the 2nd phase to set up number of washeries.
