Business Standard reported that Jindal Steel and Power Ltd has requested the government to install washeries at all coal mines to make washed coal available at affordable price to the industry. JSPL mangaing director Mr VR Sharma said in a webinar organised by PHD Chamber of Commerce "All the coal mines in the country should be coupled with the coal washeries. So, if the coal washeries can be installed at all of the mines then we can get washed coal at an affordable price."

Speaking at the webinar, M. Nagaraju, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Coal, said that interested players are free to set up coal washeries in the country. He said "The government has done away with mandatory washing of coal by the washeries for transportation beyond 300 km. But if the coal washery is required by a specific industry, players are welcome to set up. CIL is also setting up a large number of washeries.”
