India The Ministry of Coal has the overall responsibility of determining policies and strategies in respect of exploration and development of coal and lignite reserves, sanctioning of important projects of high value and for deciding all related issues. Under the administrative control of the Ministry, these key functions are exercised through the Public Sector Undertakings, namely, Coal India Ltd. and its subsidiaries and Neyveli Lignite corporation Limited. Other than Coal India Ltd. and Neyveli Lignite Corporation Ltd., the Ministry of Coal also has a joint venture with Government of Andhra Pradesh called Singareni Collieries Company Limited. Government of Andhra Pradesh holds 51% equity and Government of India holds 49 % equity.

Vision: To secure availability of Coal to meet the demand of various sectors of the economy in a eco-friendly, sustainable and cost effective manner. Ministry of Coal is committed to:

Purpose: The information on Coal Block(s) identified for Auction by Ministry of Coal is being provided only as a preliminary reference information/document by way of assistance to the prospective bidders (or users of the information) who are expected to carry out their own surveys, investigations and other further detailed examination of the identified Coal Blocks prior to any invitation of offers or tender by Ministry of Coal. This is not an offer or invitation of offer (or tender) by CMPDIL or Ministry of Coal (MoC). The information, data and other material provided herein has been provided for general information purposes only. Nothing contained herein shall be binding on the CMPDIL or its employees nor confer any right on the prospective bidders or users of the information. CMPDIL shall have no liability whatsoever in relation to or arising out of any or all contents provided hereinafter.

 I have read the Disclaimer
  1. For CMSP coal blocks, substantial part of the information provided hereinafter is from the submissions of prior allottee of the coal blocks.
  2. The Geographical Coordinates provided are provisional and may vary slightly.
  3. Assessment of geological resource (reserve), as per geological report for any coal block, is based on the level of exploration and Indian Standard Procedure (ISP norms) for coal reserve estimation. The estimate of resource(reserve) may vary due to any one or more of the following considerations:
    • Assessment of resource by considering cut-off coal seam thickness of 0.90m or more;
    • Categorisation of carbonaceous horizon by considering cut-off point of 55% of ash & moisture; However, if the low ash carbonaceous shale (55% to 65% ash+ moisture) is considered the resources may vary;
    • Deduction of 10% for geological uncertainties for arriving at ‘Net’ resource (reserve);
    • Assessment of resource considering combustible bands having thickness upto 30cm (I30 thickness) or 100cm (I00 thickness); or,
    • Any other consideration mentioned in geological report of the coal block.
  4. Assessment of tentative Peak Rated Mine Capacity is based on feasible workable solution based on available information and interpretation. The prospective bidders/users are strongly advised to use their discretion and/ or expert opinion for assessment of geological resource and feasible technical solution to arrive at likely mine capacity.
  5. With respect to the information as referred in Points No 1 to 3 mentioned above, CMPDI hereby declares a disclaimer as elaborated in Points No 6 to 8 hereunder.
  6. CMPDI has assumed that all the interpretations, judgements, inferences, references and estimations made by the geologists involved in the preparation of geological report and the submissions made by prior allottees are true, correct and authentic.
