In August alone, there was a shortfall of 50 rakes (trains) per day in demands generated from thermal power plants in 12 main power-producing states across India. RPL undertakes the entire activities connected with rail dispatch of coal traffic starting from lifting of coal from the collieries of Central Coalfields Ltd., transporting, sizing and loading into railway wagons on behalf of the Clients. RPL possesses sufficient infrastructure and resources for dispatch of coal by rail .

Dhanbad is the second most populous city in the Indian state of d ranks 33rd largest city in India and ranks 42nd largest million-plus urban agglomeration in India. It has been ranked 94th among cities for Ease of Living Index and is 96th fastest growing urban area of world by City Mayors.

Dhanbad shares its land borders with Paschim Bardhaman, West y: India. Grand Chord is part of the Howrah-Gaya-Delhi line and Howrah-Jabalpur-Mumbai acts as a link between Sitarampur, (West Bengal) and Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyay Junction, Uttar Pradesh, and covers a stretch of km ( mi).

It is a fully electrified, triple line section from Mughalsarai to Gaya and double line section from Gaya to : Indian Railway.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in social media said, "Bengal Birbhum Coalfields Ltd (BBCL), a new baby is born today." The block had been offered jointly to West Bengal, Bihar, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and Sutlej Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited (SJVNL), and a joint venture company for mining coal was formed.

Jharia Coalfield has a series of railway lines covering the region lying between the Grand Chord line on the north and the Damodar river in the south. It consists of five lines of which four are managed by East Central Railway's Dhanbad railway division and one is managed by Locale: Jharia Coalfield, Jharkhand.

The year marked the centenary of the exploitation of a squarekilometre tract in the Indian province of Bihar known as the Jharia coalfield. Fromwhen rail lines entered the region, until the end of the World War I, coal output in India increased tenfold and the size of the mines' workforce by: 5.

KOLKATA: The West Bengal government is keen on entering commercial coal mining and intends to sell 25% to 30% of its output in the open market from the world’s second largest block allotted to the state earlier this year. Commercial sale is expected to provide economies of scale to the operation bringing down costs which, otherwise, are expected to be high due to difficult geological build.

"Coal transportation has started through inland waterways at NTPC's Farakka thermal power project in West Bengal," according to Minister of Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari.

The 2, MW thermal power project gets coal from the Rajmahal Coal Fields of Eastern Coalfields. The coal at these project sites is supplied by Eastern Coalfields Ltd, a subsidiary of state-owned Coal India.

"Eastern Coalfields is supplying coal to NTPC's eastern region plants Coal transportation, which is through railways, is a problem, therefore, the hiccups," the official said. KOLKATA: Eastern Coalfields, a subsidiary of Coal India, has resumed coal supply to two thermal plants of power generator NTPC, signaling an end to the around Rs 2,crore payment impasse between the two state-run companies.

Eastern Coalfields had been supplying less than the contracted amount of coal to NTPC’s Farakka power plant in West Bengal and Kahalgaon plant in Bihar.

The 3,MW Kaniha plant — which requi metric tonnes (MT) of coal daily at the peak-rated capacity — had shut down four of its six MW units due to the shortage of coal. With its. The rail transport changed it all.

The coal brought to Calcutta cost only a fraction of the coal imported from England. Calcutta’s appetite for coal was getting more voracious because of steam ferries, jute industry start- ups, and most importantly, the hearths in a fast growing township.

South Karnpura Coalfield covers an area of square kilometres (75 sq mi) and has total coal reserves of 5, million tonnes.

Indian Coalfield, c. * DILIP SIMEON Introduction The year marked the centenary of the exploitation of a square-kilometre tract in the Indian province of Bihar known as the Jharia coalfield.

Fromwhen rail lines entered the region, until the end of the World War I, coal output in India increased tenfold and the size. Kahalgaon (formerly known as Colgong during British rule) is a town and a municipality in Bhagalpur district in the state of Bihar, is located close to the Vikramashila, that was once a famous centre of Buddhist learning across the world, along with Nalanda during the Pala Kahalgaon Super Thermal Power Plant (KhSTPP) is located near the town(3 km).

On June 13 unit 6 and 7 were shut down because of the coal crisis. Unit number 1, having capacity of MW, supplies 40 per cent of power to Bihar while units 6 and 7, having capacity of MW, supplies per cent of its production to Bihar.

The NTPC’s Kahalgaon unit is a. In modern times industries have become a very important part of an economy. They provide employment to a large labour force and contribute significantly in the. Coal India, an umbrella entity that holds together all coal fields, produces MT of coal every day; so loss due to a three-day strike would be around 4 MT.

Coal India accounts for over 80 per. Nationalisation of coal mines. Right from its genesis, the commercial coal mining in modern times in India has been dictated by the needs of the domestic consumption.

India has abundant domestic reserves of coal. Most of these are in the states of Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Madhya Pradesh. Production at Kahalgaon (Bihar) and Farakka (West Bengal)-based NTPC units, which depend on coal supply from Lalmatia, has reached a critical state due to prolong interruption in coal.

NEW DELHI: Three critical rail links being fast-tracked at the highest level will ensure transportation of million tonne (MT) additional fuel to consumers amid shortages being faced by the country, Coal Ministry has said.

Coal India Ltd has maintained that it has potential for incremental supplies which can't be done at present in the absence of rail connectivity to transport the dry-fuel. Both its water and its sand are infested by coal dust and waste from industries that have sprung up in its basin.

The km-long Damodar originates near Chandwa village in the Chhotanagpur hills in Bihar.Coal India expects to realise its entire investment on the rakes in a decade and with the life of the wagons spanning 35 years, it would be an asset creation for the miner as well.

“These CIL-owned rakes will help us push higher volumes of coal to the power sector,” a Coal India official said.Ranchi, April Essel Mining and Industries Limited (EMIL), an Aditya Birla Group company, is expected to take over the task of mining and transporting coal from Rajmahal Open Cast Project of Eastern Coalfields Limited (ECL) to augment existing production capacity and ensure smooth supply of coal to public sector thermal power units in Bihar and Bengal.
