Press Trust of India reported that a five-member panel has opposed the proposal of separating Central Mines Planning and Design Institute Ltd from Coal India, saying that the move could not be helpful for the miner which is pursuing a target of producing one billion tonne of the dry fuel by 2023-24. Sources told PTI “The report prepared by the panel is against the separation of the technical arm of Coal India. It has also been forwarded to the Ministry of Coal for its consideration in the matter. Separating CMPDIL will prove disastrous for both at this time when Coal India was asked to produce one billion tonne of coal by 2023-24 from a level of 600 million tonne now. The government wants the private sector to have access to a domestic consultancy firm, which is easily possible without the split of CMPDIL from the miner. If it is separated, there will be a mass exodus of talent from CMPDIL and Coal India will be left in the lurch for over 50 types of services that the technical subsidiary renders at a cost which is less than one per cent of the parent company’s revenue.”

The committee was formed by the CIL to assess the proposal and give its suggestions. CMPDIL, a fully-owned subsidiary of the Maharatna PSU, offers technical services to the coal behemoth. The panel comprising five general manager-level officers, one from CMPDIL and four from different departments of Coal India, has submitted its report to the miner by end of May
