India’s coal ministry is devising a single window clearance mechanism for faster online application processing for various approvals, including environmental clearance, required for coal blocks operations. A project monitoring unit has been set up for assisting bidders in obtaining different clearances. However, it will be the responsibility of the bidders to obtain clearances and approvals as per applicable laws. The coal ministry is planning to take state government departments on board for single window clearance.

Delays in getting approvals, including environment and forest clearance, by the successful bidder after winning coal mine often leads to deferment in production.

The government has put on 41 coal mines for commercial mining. The blocks are distributed across coal bearing states: Chhattisgarh (9 mines), Odisha (9 mines), Jharkhand (9 mines), Madhya Pradesh (11 mines) and Maharashtra (3 mines). There are four coking coal mines on sale: Urtan (Madhya Pradesh), Urtan North (Madhya Pradesh), Brahmadiha (Jharkhand) and Choritand Tiliaya (Jharkhand).
