Coal Controller's Organisation to grade and notify mines
Q. Which coal ministry outfit has been tasked with grading and notifying Coal India Ltd mines?- Published on 20 Mar 17
a. Coal Controller's Organisation
b. Coal Controller's Association
c. Coal Controller's Agency
d. None of the above
ANSWER: Coal Controller's Organisation
Coal Controller's Organisation, a coal ministry outfit has been tasked with grading and notifying the mines of Coal India Ltd from April 2017.
This makes a significant change of internal grading by Coal India.
This could lead to a change in existing grades as per the mines. Grading until now was done by coal producing subsidiaries of CIL and vetted by the CCO.
This change has been triggered by a fresh thrust on quality following recurring complaints on coal quality and grade mismatch by coal consumers in power and non-power sectors.
CIL has geared up to produce coal as per demand, but quality remains an issue.
In between coal seams, the presence of layers of stone and extraneous materials have led to variation in grades.
