New Delhi: The Ministry of Coal’s Secretary Amrit Lal Meena visited the exhibition arena of Coal India Limited (CIL) at the ongoing two-week-long India International Trade Fair (IIFT) 2023 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. He was accompanied by Additional Secretary (Coal) Vismita Tej and other officials of the Ministry. Meena appreciated CIL’s efforts and called upon CIL to continue on the path of growth, organizing initiatives to raise awareness among citizens about the progress made by India’s coal sector. Various steps are being taken to safeguard the nation’s interests, with top priority given to community welfare and environmental protection, following all the policies of the Government of India.
The pavilion showcased CIL’s accomplishments over the past decade, emphasizing its commitment to ensuring the nation’s energy security and dedication to environmental sustainability and the welfare of nearby communities. On display are various initiatives illustrating how an Indian PSU operates transparently, prioritizing safety, quality and employing modern technologies to supply fuel to a progressing nation.
Live portals like ‘CoalDashboard’ show the real-time status of coal production and offtake, subsidiary-wise, as well as by newly inducted commercial miners. Another portal, ‘Uttam,’ highlights the quality of coal produced in various areas of CIL. The citizen-centric initiative of the Coal Mine Surveillance Management System (CMSMS) is also on display, allowing any citizen to report illegal or suspicious activity near a coal mine through their phone via the ‘Khanan Prahari’ app. Reports are then uploaded to the CMSMS portal for authorities to take cognizance and necessary actions.
