CIL plans to restore production from discontinued underground mines

Coal India Limited (CIL) is planning to restore production from its discontinued underground mines. It has also identified 12 such blocks with provisional mineable reserves of around 1,060 million tonnes.

Of the 12 blocks, eight belong to Eastern Coalfields Limited (ECL) and the remaining four come under Bharat Coking Coal Limited (BCCL), spread over West Bengal and Jharkhand. The move is seen as part of efforts by CIL to meet its overall production target of one billion tonnes in the next four years.
