TOI, citing West Bengal Chief Minister Ms Mamata Banerjee, reported that the state has got clearance from the Centre for the Deocha Pachami coal block in Birbhum district, which has the potential to generate nearly one lakh employment opportunities. She said the coal block, the world's second largest, would bring in investments to the tune of INR 12,000 crore over a period of time.

Ms Banerjee said after inaugurating a project and laying foundation stones of several others at the Calcutta Leather Complex in Bantala "We waited for two to three years and kept on trying to get clearance for the Deocha Pachami coal block. And finally, the state has got it."

The chief minister said that besides Birbhum, Bankura, Asansol and Durgapur would also be benefited.
