Coal India has relaxed the norms for ‘mine-specific coal supply’ policy. This move would ease availability of the dry fuel to consumers having less than one million tonne of requirement per annum.
In the policy, the minimum per annum requirement of the consumer has been downsized to a quarter from 1 million tonne of coal to 0.25 million tonne.
Coal India is the world’s largest coal mining company. It also produces non-coking coal and coking coal of various grades for diverse applications.
