Govt nods 2.7 rakes per day for RVUNL coal mine in Chhattisgarh

RVUNL has been permitted by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change to begin mining at the Parsa coal block in Surguja, Chhattisgarh, which was allotted to Rajasthan Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd. (RVUNL).

The coal mine, which spans 841.53 hectares, was allotted to the state in 2015, but mining activities were halted due to a lack of environmental clearance, according to Energy Minister B D Kalla.

The Parsa coal block is adjacent to the Parsa East and Kete Basin (PEKB), from which the state already obtains coal to fuel its power plants. The environment ministry, on the other hand, has yet to approve the start of phase II of the PEKB mines.

The Parsa coal block is estimated to be capable of producing 2.7 rakes of coal per day, with a total capacity of 5 million tonnes (mt) of coal per year.

The Parsa coal block is estimated to produce 1000 rakes per year for the state. According to energy additional chief secretary Subodh Agarwal, the mine has 150 million tonnes (mt) of coal reserves and can produce for another 30 years.

The lack of coal has been a national problem, but Rajasthan has suffered more than any other state as a result of its failure to pay coal suppliers.

By unbundling the erstwhile RSEB, Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd has been entrusted with the development of state-owned power projects in the state, as well as the operation and maintenance of state-owned power stations.
