3. Coal Marketing 3.1 Sale of Coal

The raw coal offtake during 2021-22 stood at its highest ever level of 661.89 Mill Tes [including 0.764 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 0.142 MT of coal which was sold from Talabira mines through e-auction as per guidelines of Ministry of Coal] in comparison to 574.48 Mill T during 2020-21.The offtake in 2021-22 recorded a growth of 15.2% over 2020-21 breaking all the previous records of offtake and wagon loading performance.

Company-wise target vis-?-vis actual off-take for 2021-22 and 2020-21 are shown in Annexure 5 Some of the constraints hampered despatch in 2021-22 which can be listed as under: o Less supply of rakes by railways especially in MCL and NCL throughout the year. o Unloading constraints at Paradip port resulting in less supply through RSR route to Southern India based plants. o Production constraints at Rajmahal due to land acquisition issue resulting in very low supply through MGR to NTPC Plants (Farakka and Kahalgaon ) o Law and order issues at various coalfields. o Extended and unseasonal rainfall hampered the transportation and dispatch. o Less availability of sized coal, especially at SECL and WCL hampered loading.

Despatch of coal and coal products during 2021-22 was at 662.566 MT. 540.571 Mill Tes of CIL coal was despatched to the major consumers of CIL coal, i.e., the power sector consumers. Sector-wise break-up of despatch of coal & coal products for 2021-22 against the target and last year's actual is given in Annexure 6 Auction of coal through Spot e-Auction, Special Spot e- auction scheme for Import Substitution, Special Spot e-Auction, Special Forward e-Auction for Power and Exclusive e-Auction for Non-Power schemes had continued during 2021-22. During the year, CIL successfully allocated 108 Mt under different windows of e-auction at an average premium of 88% over the notified price. During the year, CCEA (Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs) approved the single window mode agnostic e-auction by clubbing the existing five windows of e-auction. The decision of CCEA was communicated by MOC vide circular no. CPD-23011/18/2021-CPD dated 21.03.2022. In pursuance to the decision, the process for finalization of the methodology of single window mode agnostic e-auction has been initiated by CIL.

3.2 Long term demand creation

Additional long term demands are created through linkages allotted through the following 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 22.5.2017.

B. Auction of coal linkages to Non-Regulated Sector (NRS) notified by the government on 15.2.2016.

A. Shakti

SHAKTI Policy contains provisions for coal supply for various categories of power plants fulfilling different criteria.

Until 2021-22, 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 32.255 MT and FSAs have been signed with 8 TPPs for the ACQ of 31.155 MT. Also, on the recommendation of SLC (LT), FSAs have been signed under the provisions of Para B(i) of SHAKTI with 8 Central/State Gencos for an ACQ of 29.093 MT as on 31.3.2022.

Till FY 22, four rounds of auction have been conducted under Para B (ii) of SHAKTI wherein linkages of 36.19 MTPA has been booked by the power plants, out of which FSAs for 31.87 MTPA had been executed. The levellised discounts in tariff offered by the power plants in four rounds of the auctions was in the range of 1p/kWh to 12 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 2021-22. Further, the process for conducting second round of Shakti B (iii) auction has been initiated during the last quarter of FY 22. Further, auctions under para B (viii-a) covering para B (iii) of SHAKTI policy were also conducted during 2021-22 for the four quarters of the financial year wherein a total of 4.54 MT quantity was booked by the power plants out of which FSAs for 4.39 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 of linkages conducted in terms of the policy formulated by the government on 15.2.2016. The coal against the linkages secured in the linkage auctions are supplied under the 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, a directive has been received from MOC, for providing linkage for 15 years with provision for mutual extension for another 15 years.

During this fiscal CIL conducted linkage auction for the subsectors Cement. CPP and Other (non-coking). The subsector wise performance is as below:

1. Cement subsector - a quantity of 2.95 MTPA has been booked at an average premium of 25%.

2. CPP subsector - a quantity of 38.33 MTPA has been booked at an average premium of 8.7%.

3. Others (non-coking) subsector - a quantity 2.89 MTPA has been booked at an average premium of 54.71%.

Cumulatively, for linkage auction conducted till FY 22, 130.19 MTPA have been booked by the NRS consumers at an average premium of 17.85% over the Notified Price.

3.3 Long term demand committed through FSAs:

Considering the FSAs executed earlier with the power plants under the provisions of NCDP and the FSAs executed under various provisions of SHAKTI, the operative linkage for 598.61 MTPA exists with the Power Sector as on 31.3.2022, which is bound by long term supply commitments through FSAs.

The total commitments with Non-Power consumers, including 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 15.2.2016 and the FSAs executed with State Nominated Agencies, stands at around 59 MT as on 31.3.2022.

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 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-part agencies (CIMFR & QCI) for undertaking the job of sampling and analysis of coal samples at loading end in CIL subsidiaries. Further on behalf of MoP, PFC empaneled M/S Mitra SK Pvt Ltd through bidding process for collection, preparation and analysis of coal samples at loading end for power sector.

Out of 58 coal testing laboratories across the subsidiary companies of CIL, 56 laboratories are now NABL accredited and accreditation process is underway in respect of another 02 laboratories.

As a result of conscious and continuous measures taken towards quality maintenance, the gap between the weighted average of declared and analyzed GCV of coal, based on results received till 31.03.2022 for FY 2021-22 is only 52 Kcal/kg which is well within one GCV band.

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 2021-22 also. Under the ambit of the linkage rationalization policy notified by the government on 15.5.2018, sources of linkage for a quantity of 7.80 MTPA for the IPPs was rationalized in 2021-22, yielding a potential savings in transportation cost by about Rs 457 crs. Rationalization in respect of IPPs is in the process. In addition to that, CIL as per the request from the State Genc and subsequent directives received from MoC, CIL has rationalized 7.644 MTPA for the State Gencos in 2021-22 with a potential savings in transportation cost by about Rs 624 Crs.

3 .5 Coal Beneficiation:

CIL is presently operating 13 Coal Washeries with a total operable washing capacity of 24.94 MTY. Out of these, 11 are coking coal washeries and balance 2 are non-coking with operable capacities of 13.94 MTY and 11 MTY respectively. The total washed coal production including middlings from these existing washeries during 2021- 22 was about 9.693 MT, out of which washed coking coal was 1.609 MT, a growth of more than 35% from 2020-21.

In March 2022, Madhuband Washery (5 MTY) was inaugurated by the Hon'ble Minister of Coal and is expected to be under commercial operation from July 2022. To enhance the beneficiation capacity of coking coal, CIL is further setting up 3 new Washeries in BCCL having total throughput capacity of 7 MTY. Out of these, 2 are under construction (4.5 MTY) and 1 (2.5 MTY) under tender finalization. 6 coking coal washeries are also being set up in CCL with a total capacity of 18 MTY — 2 in 1st Phase and 4 in 2nd Phase.

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 by the year 2024-25 and beyond to meet the coal demand of the country. CIL has already identified all resources required, including major projects, that will contribute to its 1 BT production plan and its related issues/enablers like requirement of EC/FC, land, evacuation constraints etc. CIL is committed to achieve 1 BT production plan with the active support of MoC and all other stake holders.

CIL shall adhere to 1 BT coal production plan but the demand scenario shall decide the production/supply in future.

The proposed capital expenditure for the year 2022-23 has been set at Rs16500 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, etc. during 2022-23.

5. Population of Equipment

The Population of Major Opencast Equipment (Heavy Earth Moving Machinery) as on 1st April' 22 and as on 1st April' 21 along with their Performance in terms of Availability and Utilization expressed as percentage of CIL norm is mentioned in Annexure 11 About 400 old and out lived major HEMM have been surveyed off and 42 shovel, 428 Dumpers, 63 Dozers, 25 Drills and 9 surface Mi were commissioned during 2021-22.

In the Financial year 2022-23, CIL is planning to procure High Capacity Equipment of more than Rs 2277 Crores for enhanced coal production target in the coming years.

6. Capacity Utilization

During 2021-22, total volume of coal and overburden handled by CIL was about 1733 M. Cum. The overall system capacity utilisation of CIL thus worked out to be about 77.10 %.

Overall capacity utilisation of CIL was affected due to various issues mainly the continued effect (2nd wave) of outbreak of pandemic since 2020 and those related to delay in physical possession of land, R&R and related law & order issues, encroachment, diversion of forest land & heavy rain. The continued effect of outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic (2nd wave) and imposition of subsequent restrictions on vulnerable econom c areas, resulted in subdued demand of coal by power and non-power sector during the 1st half of FY22 which adversely affected coal production & offtake of CIL in the 1st half of FY22, though recovered in the subsequent quarters with increased economic and industrial activities that resulted in enhanced coal demand.

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 2021-22, notification U/S-9 (1) has been issued for 1727.07 Ha and notification U/S-11 (1) has been issued for 1364.11 Ha of land.

During 2021-22, 3731.05 Ha of land had been taken physical possession in different Subsidiaries of Coal India.

7.5 System Improvement in Project Monitoring:

CIL is currently executing a variety of projects, ranging across mining, washery, evacuation projects, Rail projects etc. To ensure smooth implementation of such projects, CIL is continuously monitoring the ongoing progress through several sophisticated project management mechanisms.

To capture the latest status of progress across all workstreams, CIL has developed a Mine Data base Management System portal. This is an online portal where all the information related to Statutory Clearances (EC and FC), Land, R&R, Infrastructure, etc are maintained and updated on a periodic basis. The status contains the original plan, key actions taken and hindrances for implementation. This crisp summary for each workstream in each project enables faster decision making for the senior management and the projects are being implemented in an expeditious manner. Apart from the above mentioned online portal, PS (Project System) module of ERP implemented in CIL for project monitori . These detailed schedules are updated on a regular basis. This schedule monitoring process helps to identify the bottlenecks, analyse the interdependencies and determining the critical action items which will expedite the project implementation. Such project schedules are updated in the common server and is accessible to all relevant project management personnel within CIL and can be updated frequently.

The actionable insights from these detailed project schedules are mapped on Power BI Dashboards to enable expeditious decision making by the senior management.

7.6 One Billion Coal Production Programme :

Based on the assessment of demand projection in the country and consequent share of CIL, CIL has prepared a road map for 1 BT coal production by the year 2024-25 and beyond. 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, 2nd wave of COVID-19 pandemic had triggered a trend of subdued demand across all segments of the economy during the 1st half of FY22 due to which the demand for coal had taken a beating initially during FY22. Deployment of resources by Contractors especially in various infrastructure projects was affected resulting in slow progress though it had recovered to a large extent in the subsequent quarters with improving situation arising out of ease of restrictions resulting into greater participation of all the stakeholders related to mining activities. 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.

12.2 Pollution Control Measures and their Efficacy:

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 viz. 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 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 into 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 extra action. 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 the 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 2021-22, 80.05 % discharged mined water utilized for internal & community use and remaining 19.95 % is retained for future use and ground water recharging.

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:

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.

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.

Eco-park in Reclaimed land: Eco Parks have been developed in many of the mined out areas and command areas of CIL like Jhanjra Eco-park ECL, Parasnath Udyaan Eco-Park BCCL, Bishrampur Tourism Site SECL, Nandan Kanan Eco-Park NCL, Saoner Park WCL, Kayakalp Vatika CCL, Ananta Medicinal garden MCL, etc. CIL has established 27 Eco-parks & Mine Tourism & eco-restoration sites on date.

Monitoring of Reclamation: The land reclamation and restoration operations are being monitored by Satellite Surveillance. 76 major Opencast Projects (OCPs) producing more than 5 Mm? (Coal + OB) per annum were monitored in 2021-22. The remaining OCPs producing less than 5 Mm? (Coal + OB) per annum, are being monitored once in every 3rd year. The study of 76 major OCPs revealed that during 2021-22, 62.53% of the excavated area was reclaimed and limited active mining area to 37.47%. In addition, CIL is conducting vegetation cover mapping through satellite surveillance every 3 years.

Mine Closure Plan (MCP): MCP is an integral part of the Project Report prepared by CMPDIL for Coal mines of CIL. This progressi mine closure plan also forms a part of EIA / EMP prepared and got approved by MOEF&CC as a part of Environmental Clearance. In FY2021-22, Rs 109.93 Crore has been reimbursed from the Escrow fund to the concerned Project Proponents for mine closure activities.

E) Strive for continual improvement in environmental performance.

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. CVO, CIL, at the Corporate Office, acts as a coordinating authority between Vigilance Departments of subsidiaries, Ministry of Coal and the Central Vigilance Commission. CVO, CIL at corporate level deals with complaints, investigations and systemic improvements on issues having multi-subsidiary and often company-wide ramifications.

During the last three years, Vigilance Division of CIL, as a part of the preventive vigilance function, studied several processes of CIL having tremendous operational & financial implications and developed specific system improvement suggestions for the management, after thorough data analysis 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, the implementation of which ensued immense benefits for the company, are briefly summarized below:

"Mission Productivity Maximization":

Dumpers procured by CIL constitute the major portion of Capex investment running into thousands of Crores of Rupees. After stud and consultations with all equipment manufacturers, Vigilance Department detected that most of the dumpers deployed by CIL in mines are having an on-board computer system named Pay Load Monitoring System (PLMS), that has elaborate provision for generating critical information about number of trips, payload weight, time taken and distance covered in each trip, diesel consumption etc.. If the data is downloaded and analysed on regular basis, it can give great insights into the operational effectiveness including loading pattern, cycle times and fuel consumption per trip. This has great utility in productivity improvement and better operational control. Although such system was available for more than eight years, it had not been put into effective utilization for improving the productivity and detection of vulnerabilities in the coal production chain.

On advice from Vigilance, an elaborate interface has been developed by the CIL management to capture all dumper related data fr all subsidiaries and an analytic portal of Vigilance is currently analyzing the same and has detected many crucial aspects for rectification and betterment at subsidiary level.

Analysis of Transit Losses:

Most of the coal (80%) produced in India is dispatched to the domestic coal-based power plants through Rail. In the past there has been several grievances from the consumers regarding short-receipt of coal in transit to their power plants. In-depth study was entrusted to Vigilance to verify the same. Such data-driven study had not been undertaken in the past. The study not only compared the coal dispatched by CIL to randomly selected domestic power plants with the receipt of coal reported by them to Central Electricity Authority, but also did such comparison for the entire domestic coal supply sector of India. This data driven dispatch vs. receipt study conclusively established that the loss during transit between dispatch and receipt points is extremely minimal and within the expected tolerance limit of the weight measuring instruments.

Rapid Loading Systems:

The rapid loading system with pre-weight bins operational at various subsidiary sidings have been studied and systemic improvement suggestion made for timely certification by Railways for using the data of RLS-PWBs for generating RRs. This measure will reduc under loading of Railway wagons to a great extent.

Mission- Quality Management:

In the last financial year, CIL Vigilance Division embarked upon this preventive vigilance exercise 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 as urance, 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.

Expediting of TPA Test results & Referee Results:

The intensive study on referee results of coal samples has revealed excessive delay in obtaining referee results, causes for which were studied and suggested measures for timely furnishing of referee results so that the sale transactions can be brought to timely conclusion. It was recommended that CIL might explore a mechanism to achieve TPA test result availability with in a period of 5 days by incorporating mandatory time clause in the TPA contracts. This will help in reducing the inordinate delay and multiple billi s.

Mission- Underloading Minimization:

The entire process of Rail loading and incurring of underloading charges was studied in great depth by Vigilance Division, in view of the inherent complexities involved, and suggested 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 drastically.

Complaint Handling: During the year 2021-22 CIL Vigilance Division received 628 complaints including those forwarded by MoC, CBI and CVC out of which 625 have been disposed of during the year.

Punitive Vigilance: The Vigilance Units of CIL and its subsidiaries undertook numerous intensive examinations, surprise checks and investigations leading to punitive actions on 217 officials during the year.

Vigilance Awareness Week: As directed by Central Vigilance Commission, the Vigilance Awareness Week 2021 was observed in HQ and all units of Coal India Ltd and its subsidiaries from 26.10.2021 to 01.11.2021 with the theme "Independent India @75 - Self Reliance with Integrity".
