3.1 Sale of Coal

The raw coal offtake during 2020-21 was 574.48 Mill Tes [including 1.8 Mill Tes of coal purchased from Odisha Coal and Power Limited (OCPL) and resold by MCL in terms of the provisions for sale of excess coal by OCPL to CIL as per the Coal Mine

Development and Production Agreement entered between Government of India and OCPL and 0.7 MT of coal which was sold from Talabira mines through e-auction as per guidelines of Ministry of Coal] compared to 581.92 Mill Tes during 2019-20. Although there was a decline of 21% in offtake in the first quarter, due to Covid pandemic induced lockdown, company, with its efforts, reversed the trend and achieved a growth of 6% in the remaining period of the year, restricting the decline in offtake only by 1.3% during 2020-21 compared to 2019-20.

Company-wise target vis--vis actual off-take for 2020-21 compared to 2019-20 are shown in Annexure-5. z Some of the causes that attributed to the dip in coal offtake during 2020-21 compared to last year are as under: a) Inspite of the demand projection of 526 MT projection given by MOP for the Power sector on CIL during the fiscal 2020-21, only 444.97 MT of coal had been lifted by the sector and which is even below the last year intake by 4% b) Negative growth of -21% in the first quarter due to country wide lockdown because of covid-19 pandemic. c) Dispatch through road mode dropped by around 28% primarily due to the impact of nation-wide lockdown imposed during Covid-19 pandemic. d) Due to amendments in MOEF guidelines, loading through Private Washeries was also affected. Only 8.1 rakes/day were loaded from Pvt. Washeries during the fiscal as against 23.6 rakes/day last year. e) Strike at Taparia by villagers since 19th Jan' 21 till the end of the financial year in protest of poor condition of Bankibahal to Taparia Road affected road dispatch to the extent of 2.5 million Tonnes (approx 35000 tes/day) from Kulda OCP & Garjanbahal OCP at MCL. f) Some unforeseen constraints in sizing, crushing and transportation of coal also hindered the coal dispatches in SECL and WCL. z Despatch of coal and coal products during 2020-21 was at 573.60 MT. 444.97 Mill Tes of CIL coal was despatched to the major consumers of coal, i.e., the power sector consumers. Sector-wise break-up of dispatch of coal & coal products for 2020-21 against the target and last year's actual is given in Annexure-6. z Auction of coal through Spot e-Auction, Special Spot e-Auction, Special Forward e-Auction for Power and Exclusive e-Auction for Non-Power schemes had continued during 2020-21. In addition, a new e-Auction scheme was introduced during 2020-21 i.e.

Special Spot e- auction scheme for Import Substitution (SSEA-IMS) with the aim to substitute imported coal with domestic coal in consonance with the spirit of "Aatmanirbhar Bharat". z In the backdrop of the depressed market scenario arising out of lockdown, CIL took series of measures to stimulate demand. Some of them are as under: a) The Reserve price of different e-auction was pegged at par with the notified price for the period Apr-Sep'20. b) The Performance Incentive for Power FSAs had been waived for entire Financial Year (FY) of 2020-21. c) The Force majeure relief was extended to FSA Consumers for the period between April'20 & May'20, following the GOI guidelines. d) The Non-power sector FSA consumers were allowed to book unlifted/unbooked quantity in the subsequent months within FY' 2020-21. e) The facility of conversion of mode of supply from Road to Rail and vice versa was also provided to customers/consumers. f) Additional payment mode option of IRLC/Usance LC was provided to the consumers. g) Power sector was allowed to book up to 120% of their ACQ. h) Power sector was also given option to increase the trigger level from 75% to 80% i) In case of the hinterland plants linkages were granted by SLC(LT) at 90% of the normative requirement of Power Plant.

Thereafter, to enable the power plants to run their plants with 100% domestic supplies, SLC(LT) enhanced the linkage by the remaining 10% of the normative requirement. z In spite of the subdued demand scenario due to Covid-19, CIL achieved a major milestone during FY 2020-21 by successfully booking 124 MT of coal under E-auction channel. This is the highest booking of coal under E-auction since its inception, surpassing the previous highest booking of 113.6 MT achieved in FY 2016-17. The quantity booked under E-auction during 2019-20 was around 66 MT.

3.2 Long term demand creation z Additional long-term demands are created through linkages allotted through the below mentioned schemes formulated by the government: A. Scheme for Harnessing and Allocating Koyala (Coal) Transparently in India (SHAKTI), for Power Sector notified by the government on 22nd May' 2017.

B. Auction of coal linkages to Non-Regulated Sector (NRS) notified by the government on 15th Feb' 2016.


Until 2020-21, MoC has recommended for signing of FSA with 9 Thermal Power Plants (TPPs) under the provisions of Para A(i) of SHAKTI for an Annual Contracted Quantity of 22.513 MT and FSAs have been signed with 8 TPPs for the ACQ of 21.413 MT. Also, on the recommendation of SLC(LT), FSAs have been signed under the provisions of Para B(i) of SHAKTI with 6 Central/State Gencos for an ACQ of 18.809 MT as on 31.3.2021 Three rounds of auction have been conducted under Para B (ii) of SHAKTI wherein linkages of 32.95 MTPA has been booked by the power plants, out of which FSAs for 31.32 MTPA had been executed until 2020-21. The levelized discounts in tariff offered by the power plants in the three rounds of the auctions was in the range of 1p/kWh to 10 p/kWh.

Under Para B (iii) of SHAKTI, linkage of 6.48 MTPA had been booked by the power plants, out of which FSAs for 4.84 MTPA had been executed until 2020-21.

Further, auctions under para B (viii-a) covering para B (iii) of SHAKTI policy were also conducted during 2020-21 for all the four quarters of the financial year wherein 2.97 MT was booked by the power plants. Out of this, FSAs for 2.73 MT was executed by the power plants.

B. Auction of coal linkages to Non-Regulated Sector:

Fresh linkages to consumers in Non-Regulated Sector (NRS) are granted through auction linkages conducted in terms of the policy formulated by the government on 15th Feb' 2016. The coal against the linkages secured in the linkage auctions are supplied under FSAs to be executed for a period of 5 years, the tenure of which can be extended further for 5 years upon mutual consent. In case of Steel Sector, the FSA tenure has been increased to 15 years, with a provision of mutual extension by another 15 years.

Tranche V of NRS Linkage auction commenced with Steel (coking) subsector auction in October 2019 where 1.30 MTPA coal was booked at the notified price. Subsequently, auction of Sponge Iron subsector conducted during December 2019 where 4.19 MTPA coal was booked with a premium of 19.2% over the notified price.

Thereafter, NRS Linkage auction of the remaining subsector of Tranche -V was put on hold, initially due to certain changes in the normative calculation methodology in the scheme/system, as per direction of MoC, and subsequently due to volatile market arising out of lockdown. Once the market stabilizes, CIL will commence linkage auction for the remaining subsector of tranche V.

Cumulatively, in all the four tranches and fifth tranche (ongoing), linkages of 86.04 MTPA have been booked by the NRS consumers at weighted average premium of 19.37% over the Notified Price. The additional premium shall be applicable throughout the tenure of these FSAs over the notified price applicable from time to time for the supplies.

3.3 Long term demand committed through FSAs:

Considering the FSAs executed earlier with the power plants under the provisions of NCDP and FSAs executed under various provisions of SHAKTI, the operative linkage for a total quantity of about 582 MTPA exists with the Power Sector as on 31st Mar' 2021, which is bound by a long term supply commitments through FSAs.

The total commitments with Non-Power consumers, including the ACQ against the operative FSAs executed under the earlier linkage regime under NCDP, linkages secured under the linkage auction policy for Non-Regulated Sector notified by the government on 15th Feb' 2016 and the FSAs executed with State Nominated Agencies, stands at 86 MT as on 31st Mar' 2021.

To cope up with any scenario of deficit in availability of coal, provision exists in the FSAs to peg the supplies at various levels of commitment.

3.4 Consumer satisfaction z 3.4.1 Quality Management

For enhanced customer satisfaction, special emphasis has been given to Quality Management of coal from mine to dispatch point.

Now, all the consumers of CIL have the option for quality assessment of the supplies through independent third-party sampling agencies. In order to ensure supply of good quality/sized coal, two reputed global quality assurance service providers namely COTECNA Inspection India Private Limited and SGS India Private Limited have been engaged in addition to the existing third-party agencies for undertaking the job of sampling and analysis of coal samples at loading end in CIL subsidiaries.

In order to monitor coal quality, a portal ‘UTTAM' (Unlocking Transparency by Third Party Assessment of Mined Coal) has been launched by CIL to capture the entire cycle of sample. With the help of this portal, information of coal quality on regular basis is accessible to Consumers. The coal companies and CIL can monitor the same through web based ‘Coal Quality Monitoring Portal'.

Out of 58 coal testing laboratories across the subsidiary companies of CIL, 50 laboratories are now NABL accredited and accreditation process is underway for the balance 08 laboratories.

As the result of conscious and continuous measures taken towards quality maintenance, the gap between the weighted average of declared and analyzed GCV of coal reduced remarkably to 23 Kcal/Kg in 2020-21 from 61 Kcal/Kg in 2019-20, narrowing down the variation well within one GCV band. z 3.4.2 Linkage Rationalization

Linkage rationalization initiatives to reduce the cost of transportation of coal and cost of generation of power were continued during the year

2020-21 also. Under the ambit of the linkage rationalization policy notified by the government on 15th May' 2018, sources of linkage for 11 MTPA for the State / Central Gencos was rationalized in 2020-21, yielding a potential savings in transportation cost by about Rs1167 crs. Rationalization in respect of IPPs is in the process.

3.5 Coal Beneficiation:

CIL is presently operating 13 Coal Washeries with a total washing capacity of 35.38 MTY. Out of these, 11 are coking coal washeries and balance 2 are non-coking, with capacities of 24.38 MTY and 11 MTY respectively. The total washed coal production including middlings from these existing washeries during 2020- 21 was about 12.29 MT.

CIL had commissioned Patherdih 1 (5 MTY) which is under commercial operation since July 2020. To enhance the beneficiation capacity of coking coal, CIL is setting up further 4 new Washeries in BCCL having total throughput capacity of 12 MTY. Out of these, 3 are under construction (9.5 MTY) and 1 (2.5 MTY) under tendering. 2 coking coal washeries are also being set up in CCL with a total capacity of 7 MTY. These washeries are expected to be operational between 2021 and 2023. More washeries are being explored to wash the surplus coking coal to minimize import of coking coal for Steel Sector.

CIL also has plans for setting up non-coking coal washeries in MCL. One is under construction and if more demand is there for beneficiated coal at value added prices, 2 more washeries may be set up.

3.6 Stock of Coal

The stock of coal (net of provisions) at the close of the year 2020-21 was Rs 7619.11 Crores (previous year Rs5199.51 crores), which was equivalent to 1.11 months value of net sales (previous year 0.70 months). The company-wise position of stock held on 31st March 2021 & on 31st March 2020 are given in Annexure 7.

3.7 Trade Receivables

Trade Receivables i.e. net coal sales dues outstanding as on 31st Mar, 2021, after providing Rs 2542.73 crores (previous year Rs 1887.90 crores) for bad and doubtful debts, was Rs 19623.12 crores (previous year Rs 14408.22 crores) which is equivalent to 1.86 months Gross Sales of CIL as a whole (previous year 1.28 months). Subsidiary-wise break-up of Trade Receivables outstanding as on 31st March 2021 as against 31st March 2020 are shown in Annexure 8.

3.8 Payment of Royalty, Cess, Sales Tax, Stowing Excise Duty, Central Excise Duty, Clean Energy Cess, Entry Tax & Others

Raw coal production and production from underground and opencast mines.

Production of raw coal was 596.22 Mill Te during 2020-21 against 602.14 Million Tonne during 2019-20. Production from Opencast mines during 2020-21 was 95.56% of total raw coal production.

Subsidiary wise production, production from underground and opencast mines and coking and non-coking production are given in Annexure 10. Washed Coal (Coking) Production-Subsidiary-wise production of Washed Coal (Coking) is given in Annexure 10A.

Overburden Removal-Company-wise overburden removal is disclosed in Annexure 10B. FUTURE OUTLOOK

Based on the demand projection in ‘Vision 2024' for coal sector in the country and subsequent demand projection on CIL, a roadmap has been prepared to project production plan in medium term wherein CIL has envisaged 1 Billion Tonne (Bt) coal production in the year 2023-24 to meet the coal demand of the country. To achieve this target, CIL has identified major projects and assessed their related issues.

The capital expenditure for the year 2021-22 has been set at Rs17000 Crores. Further, as per the investment plan, CIL has planned to invest substantial amount in diversification projects viz. Solar Power, Thermal Power Plant, Revival of Fertilizer Plants, Surface Coal Gasification (SCG), CBM, Rail Wagon procurement etc. during 2021-22.


The Population of Major Opencast Equipment (Heavy Earth Moving Machinery) as on 1st April, 21 and as on 1st April, 20 along with their Performance in terms of Availability and Utilization expressed as percentage of CIL norm is mentioned in Annexure 11.

About 200 nos. of old and outlived major HEMM have been surveyed-off in 2020-21 while Purchase Orders for 5 nos. 24/96 Dragline amounting to Rs 2400 Crores and 96 nos. 240T 7dumpers amounting to Rs 3200 Crores have been placed.

In the Financial year 2021-22, CIL is planning to procure High Capacity Equipment of more than Rs 9000 Crores viz, 1 no. Dragline, 35 nos. Shovels, 112 nos. Dumpers and 43 nos. of Dozers for enhanced coal production target in the coming years.


During 2020-21, total volume of coal and overburden handled by CIL was about 1717 M. Cum. The overall system capacity utilisation of CIL thus worked out to be 80.57 %.

Overall capacity utilisation of CIL was affected mainly due to outbreak of pandemic and to delay in physical possession of land, R&R and related law & order issues, encroachment, diversion of forest land, heavy rain and contractual issues.

The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic and imposition of subsequent lockdown resulted in subdued demand of coal by power and non-power sector during FY21 which adversely affected coal production & offtake of CIL. Coal production was regulated due to high pit head coal stock, sufficient coal stock at power houses end and less offtake.

Subsidiary wise Capacity utilisation given in Annexure 12.

7.4 Achievement in Acquisition and Possession of land:

In all the subsidiaries of Coal India, the major portion of land is possessed which were acquired under Coal Bearing Areas (Acquisition & Development) Act, 1957. During 2020-21, notification U/S-9 (1) has been issued for 1978.99 Ha and notification U/S-11 (1) has been issued for 2027.46 Ha of land.

During 2020-21, 2675.43 Ha of land had been taken physical possession in different Subsidiaries of Coal India.

7.5 System Improvement in Project Monitoring:

CIL had developed WEB Based Online Monitoring System for monitoring implementation of coal projects. The portal has all important information related to salient features, Land, R&R, EC, Production, financial information, Milestones etc. which is updated regularly. The progress of projects are reviewed based on the information uploaded on the portal.

Apart from this portal, the progress of implementation of all the ongoing projects costing more than Rs 20 Crores. are being monitored through Master Control Networks (MCNs), developed in MS project software and uploaded in project server.

These networks are updated regularly online. The important information of these MCNs are fetched on Dashboard created on Power BI for decision making at higher level.

Crucial issues are also being uploaded by CIL and its Subsidiary Companies on the e-CPMP Portal of MOC and MOC is vigorously following up with the State Governments and other associated ministries by holding meetings with concerned officials to expedite EC & FC clearances.

7.6 One Billion Coal Production Programme

Based on the assessment of demand projection in the country and consequent share of CIL, CIL had prepared a road map for 1 Bt. coal production by the year 2023-24. The 1Bt coal production plan was conceived on Best-Effort-Basis by the subsidiaries, maximizing their production projections, indicating the associated enabling conditions, e.g. green clearances, land & R&R, and other required development activities like development of evacuation infrastructure.

However, COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a trend of subdued demand across all segments of the economy due to which the demand for coal has taken a severe beating during FY21.This has resulted into low offtake and high pit head stock. Deployment of resources by Contractors especially in various infrastructure projects was affected resulting in slow progress. It was further envisaged that this trend is likely to continue as long as the pandemic and its effects persist.

In view of the above scenario, the pace of implementation of 1 Bt programme shall definitely be governed by coal demand scenario. Though CIL is all set for implementing the proposed programme on Best-Effort basis for achieving the targets, yet in view of the projections of low demand from power sector and accumulated pithead stock, the review of the programme will be taken up with MoC to avoid lot of wastage of resources and further addition to already huge idle inventory of coal which shall prevent losses due to quality deterioration, incipient fire and pilferage. The review shall also prevent further addition to already accumulated large amount of Trade receivables.


Conservation of energy always remains a priority area and CIL/Subsidiaries have extensively exercised various measures towards reduction in specific energy consumption.

8.1 Energy Consumption scenario

CIL is committed to protect environment by practicing and following sustainable mining practices right from mine planning stage. Various pollution control measures and initiatives are being taken up concurrently with mining operations, for maintaining acceptable / permissible limits of major physical and chemical attributes of environment namely air, water, hydrogeology, ground vibrations, noise, land, etc.

A) Air Pollution and its Control Measures:

To control and reduce dust generation during drilling, blasting, loading and coal transportation, CIL has taken up various initiatives enumerated in the MoEF&CC approved Environmental Management Plan (EMP) of projects. The EMP is prepared factoring the impact on existing environment and forest due to coal mining undertaken after conducting an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) study of each project. Mist spraying systems, mobile water sprinklers and automatic sprinklers have been provided to mitigate air pollution & its control measures.

Some of the important initiatives taken by CIL are as follows: a) Transportation of coal by conveyors, covered trucks & loading in railway rakes through Silo. b) Blacktopping & repairing of coal transportation roads and strengthening of haul roads. c) Development of wind break and vertical greenery system. d) Deployment of additional Surface Miners and Continuous Miners in opencast & U/G mine respectively for blasting free coal extraction. e) Implementation of First Mile Connectivity to reduce transport of coal by road.

B) Mine Water Management:

Mine Discharge Treatment Plants (MDTP) are installed in mines for treatment of discharged mine water on the surface for second phase treatment. Treated mine water is then used partly for dust suppression, fire-fighting, plantation, washing etc. As per the need of the local community, treated mine water is supplied to the nearby villages for drinking & irrigation purposes. In order to assess the impact of mining activities on ground water, monitoring of ground water levels is being carried out in and around of the mine lease hold area. For ground water recharge within mine premises and nearby villages, initiatives like rainwater harvesting, digging of ponds / development of lagoons, de-silting of existing ponds / tanks etc. have been taken. Regular monitoring of mine, workshop and domestic effluent is carried out as per rule and desired actions are being taken. Reports of the same are regularly submitted to SPCBs and MoEF&CC.

In 2020-21, 77.7% discharged mined water utilized for internal & community use and balance 22.3% used for ground water recharge.

C) Noise Pollution Control Measure:

For control of noise pollution, various measures like proper maintenance of equipment, green belt development around the mine and residential area, blasting in day time and use of ear muff / ear plugs at noisy areas are adopted.

D) Land Reclamation: z Reclamation of the mined out areas and external OB dumps are major environmental mitigatory activities taken up by CIL.

Reclamation of mined out areas are being done as per the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) and Mine Closure Plan (MCP) which are approved by MoEF&CC. Top soil is preserved, stored and used in plantation areas in the opencast mines. Concurrent reclamation and rehabilitation of mined out areas are taken up for gainful land use. After technical reclamation is completed, plantation is carried out which is termed as biological reclamation. z Eco-restoration: For effective Bio-reclamation of disturbed land, scientific studies are carried out to select suitable species of plants for afforestation on three tier plantation concept. Forest Research Institute (FRI) has been engaged by CIL for sharing their expertise in the field of eco-restoration in the reclaimed areas. Many Eco-restoration sites have been developed in subsidiary companies of CIL with technical collaboration of FRI. z Eco-park in Reclaimed land: Eco Parks have been developed in many of the mined out areas and command areas of CIL like Gunjan Park,ECL, Gokul Eco-Cultural Park, BCCL, Ananya Vatika, SECL, Nandan Kanan Eco Park, NCL, Saoner Park, WCL, Kayakalp Vatika, Rajarappa Eco Park, CCL etc. CIL has established 24 Eco-parks & Mine Tourism & eco-restoration sites on date. z Monitoring of Reclamation: The land reclamation and restoration operations are being monitored by Satellite Surveillance. 51 major Opencast Projects (OCPs) producing more than 5 Mm (Coal + OB) per annum were monitored in 2020-21. The remaining OCPs producing less than 5 Mm (Coal + OB) per annum, are being monitored once every 3rd year. The study during 2020-21 shows that 51 major OCPs have reclaimed area of 63.73% and active mining area is only 36.27% of the total excavated area. In addition, CIL is conducting vegetation cover mapping through satellite surveillance every 3 years. z Mine Closure Plan (MCP): MCP is an integral part of the Project Report prepared by CMPDIL for Coal mines of CIL. This progressive mine closure plan also forms a part of the EIA / EMP prepared and got approved by MOEF&CC as a part of Environmental Clearance.

As of 31st March, 2021, Rs 581.52 Crore has been reimbursed from the Escrow fund to the concerned Project Proponents for progressive and final mine closure activities.

Coal India Ltd. has a well-structured Vigilance Division at Corporate HQ-Kolkata, headed by a Chief Vigilance Officer of the rank of Joint Secretary to Govt. of India, assisted by a multi-disciplinary team of vigilance officers. Similarly, all of its eight subsidiaries have their independent Vigilance Units, each headed by CVOs at the level of Director to GoI.

CVO, CIL, at the Corporate Office, acts as a coordinating authority between Vigilance Departments of Subsidiaries, Ministry of Coal and the CVC. Chief Vigilance Officer at corporate office deals with complaints, investigations and systemic improvements on issues having multi-subsidiary and often company-wide implications.

During the last two years, Vigilance Division of CIL, as a part of their preventive vigilance function, explored several processes having tremendous operational & financial implications and developed practical suggestions successfully for the management, using modern data analytic tools and sometimes accompanied by field experiments. Some of these studies, attempted for the first time ever, which crystalized into actionable and implementable suggestions for management, the implementation of which derived immense benefits for the company, are briefly summarized below: z Study and systemic suggestions on the phenomenon of under-loading of railway rakes: Till 2018-19, underloading of coal dispatched to various consumers and the resultant under loading charges paid by the coal companies had been increasing at an abnormal rate, reaching to a level of Rs772 crores in 2018-19 from Rs332 crores in 2014-15. Despite several attempts made in the past, through contractual and technological interventions, to curb this trend, no significant impact could be made.

In view of the inherent complexities involved, the entire process was studied in great depth by Vigilance Division, which resulted into various systemic improvement suggestions. The implementation of these suggestions, by the management, successfully curbed the rising trend of underloading and resulted in reducing the underloading charges to a level of Rs530 crores in 2019-20 and further to a level of Rs467 crores in 2020-21. The absolute saving to CIL due to this single systemic improvement stood at Rs242 crores and Rs63 crores in 2019-20 and 2020-21 respectively. The progressive reduction of underloading charges in the financial year 2020-21 is more significant considering the fact that this year recorded the highest ever increase in coal dispatch by rail (324.8 Mill.T in 2020-‘21 as against 282.8 Mill.T in 2019-‘20), which establishes sustainable nature of such system improvements.

z Vigilance Division made an in-depth studies on various policies and processes related to measurement of coal and overburden – two core activities in coal mining. The studies revealed several vulnerabilities which had huge ramification not only in the investigation of coal shortage cases and excess payment cases for overburden removal, but also in the accuracy and efficiency of measurement of coal stock and OB removal. These suggestions led to embarking upon certain fundamental changes in the Uniform Code, commonly known as Yellow Book, after nine years of its first revision, unveiled by the Hon'ble Minister of Coal on CIL's Foundation Day-2020.

In the quest for fast and accurate measurement of extracted material during mining, CIL has always been upgrading its instruments for measurement. CIL has been the industry leader in introducing the latest Terrestrial Laser Based technology for measurements. The study undertaken by Vigilance Division into the functioning of 3D TLS resulted in making these instruments more efficiently and optimally utilized, which were being used for in-situ overburden measurement earlier. For the first time, CIL decided to adopt them for measurement of coal stock also in selected major mines of coal companies. CIL also issued policy circulars to reduce the survey and measurement time through 3D TLS by a substantial margin. z In the current financial year, CIL Vigilance Division embarked upon a preventive vigilance exercise called "Mission – Quality Management" (MQM) to study the entire quality determination process chain of CIL and its Subsidiary coal companies aided by modern data analytic tools. CVO, CIL examined consignment-quality-test results of more than 1.2 million samples, spanning over four years and representing a quantity of 1625 Million Tonnes of coal. Insights gained from this study altered certain fundamental perceptions about coal quality, quality assurance, quality control and customer satisfaction. Very elaborate systemic suggestions have been presented by CVO, CIL through multiple Advisories, which were discussed at the highest level. Effective implementation of these suggestions has secured rich dividends to the company in the form of quality bonus during 2020-'21.

In order to isolate and quantify intrinsic factors which contribute to quality variations, several field experiments were conducted in collaboration with mine managements under the guidance of CVO, CIL to determine the extent of in-seam variation in calorific value of coal in some of the major seams of five coal companies. z During the year 2020-'21 CIL Vigilance Division received 722 complaints including those forwarded by MoC, CBI and CVC out of which 718 have been disposed during the year. z Despite the constraints posed by the prevailing COVID situation, the Vigilance Units of CIL and its subsidiaries undertook numerous intensive examinations, surprise checks and investigations leading to punitive actions on 409 officials during the year. The major areas of punitive action include procurement, recruitment and measurement of coal stocks and overburden removed.

As directed by Central Vigilance Commission, the Vigilance Awareness Week 2020 was observed in HQ and all Units of Coal India Ltd and its Subsidiaries from 27.10.2020 to 02.11.2020 emphasizing the theme "Vigilant India- Prosperous India".
