Coal India (CIL) will develop 55 new coal mines and expand 193 existing ones in the next five years. The company is also undertaking portal-based monitoring of ongoing projects to ensure their timely completion.

The 55 greenfield projects have a capacity of 92 million tpa and 193 brownfield projects having a capacity of about 310 million tpa.

CIL has introduced technology to improve its work efficiency with high capacity Heavy Earth Moving Machinery, like 42 cum Shovel and 240 T Rear Dumpers in Gevra Expansion, Dipka and Kusmunda open cast mines and introduction of surface miners in opencast mines to improve operational efficiency and cater to environmental needs.

During 2018-19, around 50% of the opencast coal production in CIL was through surface miners.

Further, in order to reduce import of coal, CIL is taking up source rationalisation with part supply from higher grade coal sources
