India’s coal ministry recently emphasised on quick operationalization of all of these blocks or may otherwise return them to the Ministry of Coal for their re-allotment or auction to other agencies. Recently, the government had enquired about the operational status of the 110 coal blocks allotted to CIL and whether extraction from these coal blocks is techno-economically feasible. To this, the government was told that of the 110 additional CIL blocks, 50 were explored, 41 were under exploration and balance 19 were partly or regionally explored. Further, project reports of 25 blocks out of the total blocks explored have been prepared.

CIL, which accounts for over 80 per cent of domestic coal output, had said that it will produce 660 million tonnes of coal in this financial year.
