Ministry of Coal in discussion with World Bank for collaboration on coal mine closure framework

The Ministry of Coal is in discussions with the World Bank for collaboration on the mine closure framework.

World Bank’s experience in handling mine closure cases in different countries will be highly beneficial and facilitate the adoption of the best practices and standards in handling mine closure cases. Both renewable energy (RE) and coal are expected togo hand in hand complementing each other for some more time and then RE will take over the energy security of the country. The ministry had earlier stated that it is in the process of finalising a robust mine closure framework on three major aspects – institutional governance; people and communities; and environmental reclamation and land re-purposing on the principles of just transition.
