‘Our CBM, CMM projects also speak of mine safety’
There is a lot of pressure on CIL to increase production. Is there any technological solution to the issue?
CMPDI functions like the backbone of CIL. We are also the nodal agency for exploring and identifying non-CIL blocks, which are allotted to private players for captive use. We are also a nodal agency for coal bed methane ( CBM) reserves in the country. So you can understand the role we have to play in meeting the country’s energy needs. But as far as coal mining is concerned we do the entire planning—from which mine has to be developed to how it has to be developed. We have the mandate to identify latest technologies and see what can be done to increase productivity. To increase coal production we will have to look for better technologies suited to Indian seam conditions. But there are hurdles like clearances from the ministry of environment and
