NECIL looks to increase production in the Assam coal mine

Northeastern Coalfields (NECIL), a coal India business, is working to boost output from 0.2 million metric tonnes to 1.5 million tonne annually. NECIL operates one coal mine in the Margherita sub-division of Tinsukia district. At his office in Lok Sewa Bhawan, Guwahati, Chief Secretary Ravi Kota was visited by a group of top officials led by PM Prasad, Chairman and Managing Director of Coal India Limited (CIL). During the conversation, the Chief Secretary gave an update on the status of NECIL's current projects in Assam. Kota emphasised that in order to decrease coal imports and support key businesses, the Assam government, led by Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, is determined to establish Assam as a sustainable and ecologically pure supplier of coal. Currently, one NECIL-owned coal mine in the Margherita subdivision of the Tinsukia district is producing 0.2 million metric tonnes of coal annually. It is anticipated that the output will rise to 0.3 million tonnes year very soon, and steps are being taken to enhance it to 1.5 million tonnes annually. The Government of Assam's Departments of Revenue & Disaster Management, Environment & Forests, and Mines & Minerals will work in tandem with NECIL to accomplish this goal. It is projected that increasing coal output will greatly boost state exchequer earnings in addition to meeting the needs of state-based companies. According to Kota, the CIL authorities may choose to focus on infrastructure development where necessary and designate schools and hospitals in mining communities in order to enhance the standard of living for the state's mining workers through focused CSR initiatives. As and when CIL presents the proposal in this context and satisfies the desired need of the government for the development of the involved mining population, the concerned district administrations will offer the appropriate support, he continued.
