3. Coal Marketing 3.1 Sale of Coal

The raw coal offtake during 2021-22 stood at its highest ever level of661.89 Mill Tes [including 0.764 Mill Tes of coal purchased from Odisha Coal and PowerLimited (OCPL) and resold by MCL in terms of the provisions for sale of excess coal byOCPL to CIL as per the Coal Mine Development and Production Agreement entered betweenGovernment of India and OCPL and 0.142 MT of coal which was sold from Talabira minesthrough e-auction as per guidelines of Ministry of Coal] in comparison to 574.48 Mill Tduring 2020-21.The offtake in 2021-22 recorded a growth of 15.2% over 2020-21 breaking allthe previous records of offtake and wagon loading performance.

Company-wise target vis-?-vis actual off-take for 2021-22 and 2020-21are shown in Annexure 5 Some of the constraints hampered despatch in 2021-22 which canbe listed as under: o Less supply of rakes by railways especially in MCL and NCLthroughout the year. o Unloading constraints at Paradip port resulting in less supplythrough RSR route to Southern India based plants. o Production constraints at Rajmahal dueto land acquisition issue resulting in very low supply through MGR to NTPC Plants (Farakkaand Kahalgaon ) o Law and order issues at various coalfields. o Extended and unseasonalrainfall hampered the transportation and dispatch. o Less availability of sized coalespecially 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. thepower sector consumers. Sector-wise break-up of despatch of coal & coal products for2021-22 against the target and last year's actual is given in Annexure 6 Auction ofcoal through Spot e-Auction Special Spot e- auction scheme for Import SubstitutionSpecial Spot e-Auction Special Forward e-Auction for Power and Exclusive e-Auction forNon-Power schemes had continued during 2021-22. During the year CIL successfullyallocated 108 Mt under different windows of e-auction at an average premium of 88% overthe notified price. During the year CCEA (Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs) approvedthe single window mode agnostic e-auction by clubbing the existing five windows ofe-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 forfinalization of the methodology of single window mode agnostic e-auction has beeninitiated by CIL.

3.2 Long term demand creation

Additional long term demands are created through linkages allottedthrough the following schemes formulated by the government: A. Scheme for Harnessing andAllocating Koyala (Coal) Transparently in India (SHAKTI) for Power Sector notified by thegovernment on 22.5.2017.

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

A. Shakti

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

Until 2021-22 MoC has recommended for signing of FSA with 9 ThermalPower Plants (TPPs) under the provisions of Para A(i) of SHAKTI for an Annual ContractedQuantity 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 ofPara 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 ofwhich FSAs for 31.87 MTPA had been executed. The levellised discounts in tariff offered bythe 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 bythe power plants out of which FSAs for 4.84 MTPA had been executed until 2021-22. Furtherthe process for conducting second round of Shakti B (iii) auction has been initiatedduring 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 thefinancial year wherein a total of 4.54 MT quantity was booked by the power plants out ofwhich 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 grantedthrough auction of linkages conducted in terms of the policy formulated by the governmenton 15.2.2016. The coal against the linkages secured in the linkage auctions are suppliedunder the FSAs to be executed for a period of 5 years the tenure of which can be extendedfurther for 5 years upon mutual consent. In case of Steel Sector a directive has beenreceived from MOC for providing linkage for 15 years with provision for mutual extensionfor another 15 years.

During this fiscal CIL conducted linkage auction for the subsectorsCement. 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 anaverage premium of 25%.

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

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

Cumulatively for linkage auction conducted till FY 22 130.19 MTPAhave been booked by the NRS consumers at an average premium of 17.85% over the NotifiedPrice.

3.3 Long term demand committed through FSAs:

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

The total commitments with Non-Power consumers including ACQ againstthe operative FSAs executed under the earlier linkage regime under NCDP linkages securedunder the linkage auction policy for Non-Regulated Sector notified by the government on15.2.2016 and the FSAs executed with State Nominated Agencies stands at around 59 MT ason 31.3.2022.

To cope up with any scenario of deficit in availability of coalprovision 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 toQuality Management of coal from mine to dispatch point. Now all the consumers of CIL havethe option for quality assessment of the supplies through independent third-party samplingagencies. In order to ensure supply of good quality/sized coal two reputed global qualityassurance service providers namely COTECNA Inspection India Private Limited and SGS IndiaPrivate 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 endin CIL subsidiaries. Further on behalf of MoP PFC empaneled M/S Mitra SK Pvt Ltd throughbidding process for collection preparation and analysis of coal samples at loading endfor power sector.

Out of 58 coal testing laboratories across the subsidiary companies ofCIL 56 laboratories are now NABL accredited and accreditation process is underway inrespect of another 02 laboratories.

As a result of conscious and continuous measures taken towards qualitymaintenance the gap between the weighted average of declared and analyzed GCV of coalbased on results received till 31.03.2022 for FY 2021-22 is only 52 Kcal/kg which is wellwithin one GCV band.

3.4.2 Linkage Rationalization:

Linkage rationalization initiatives to reduce the cost oftransportation of coal and cost of generation of power were continued during the year2021-22 also. Under the ambit of the linkage rationalization policy notified by thegovernment on 15.5.2018 sources of linkage for a quantity of 7.80 MTPA for the IPPs wasrationalized in 2021-22 yielding a potential savings in transportation cost by about Rs457 crs. Rationalization in respect of IPPs is in the process. In addition to that CIL asper the request from the State Genc and subsequent directives received from MoC CIL hasrationalized 7.644 MTPA for the State Gencos in 2021-22 with a potential savings intransportation cost by about Rs 624 Crs.

3 .5 Coal Beneficiation:

CIL is presently operating 13 Coal Washeries with a total operablewashing capacity of 24.94 MTY. Out of these 11 are coking coal washeries and balance 2are non-coking with operable capacities of 13.94 MTY and 11 MTY respectively.

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

7.5 System Improvement in Project Monitoring:

CIL is currently executing a variety of projects ranging acrossmining washery evacuation projects Rail projects etc. To ensure smooth implementationof such projects CIL is continuously monitoring the ongoing progress through severalsophisticated project management mechanisms.

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

The actionable insights from these detailed project schedules aremapped on Power BI Dashboards to enable expeditious decision making by the seniormanagement.

7.6 One Billion Coal Production Programme :

Based on the assessment of demand projection in the country andconsequent share of CIL CIL has prepared a road map for 1 BT coal production by the year2024-25 and beyond. The 1BT coal production plan was conceived on Best-Effort-Basis by thesubsidiaries maximizing their production projections indicating the associated enablingconditions e.g. green clearances land & R&R and other required developmentactivities like development of evacuation infrastructure.

However 2nd wave of COVID-19 pandemic had triggered a trend of subdueddemand across all segments of the economy during the 1st half of FY22 due to which thedemand for coal had taken a beating initially during FY22. Deployment of resources byContractors especially in various infrastructure projects was affected resulting in slowprogress though it had recovered to a large extent in the subsequent quarters withimproving situation arising out of ease of restrictions resulting into greaterparticipation of all the stakeholders related to mining activities. In view of the abovescenario the pace of implementation of 1 BT programme shall definitely be governed bycoal demand scenario though CIL is all set for implementing the proposed programme onBest-Effort basis for achieving the targets.

CIL is committed to protect environment by practicing and followingsustainable mining practices right from mine planning stage. Various pollution controlmeasures and initiatives are being taken up concurrently with mining operations formaintaining acceptable / permissible limits of major physical and chemical attributes ofenvironment viz. air water hydrogeology ground vibrations noise land etc

A) Air Pollution and its Control Measures:

To control and reduce dust generation during drilling blastingloading and coal transportation CIL has taken up various initiatives enumerated inMoEF&CC approved Environmental Management Plan (EMP) of projects. The EMP is preparedfactoring the impact on existing environment and forest due to coal mining undertakenafter conducting an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) study of each project. Mistspraying systems mobile water sprinklers and automatic sprinklers have been provided tomitigate 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 rakesthrough Silo. b) Blacktopping & repairing of coal transportation roads andstrengthening 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 minerespectively for blasting free coal extra action. e) Implementation of First MileConnectivity to reduce transport of coal by road.

B) Mine Water Management:

Mine Discharge Treatment Plants (MDTP) are installed in mines fortreatment of discharged mine water on the surface for the second phase treatment. Treatedmine water is then used partly for dust suppression fire-fighting plantation washingetc. As per the need of the local community treated mine water is supplied to the nearbyvillages for drinking & irrigation purposes. In order to assess the impact of miningactivities on ground water monitoring of ground water levels is being carried out in andaround of the mine lease hold area. For ground water recharge within mine premises andnearby villages initiatives like rainwater harvesting digging of ponds / development oflagoons de-silting of existing ponds / tanks etc. have been taken. Regular monitoring ofmine workshop and domestic effluent is carried out as per rule and desired actions arebeing taken. Reports of the same are regularly submitted to SPCBs and MoEF & CC. In2021-22 80.05 % discharged mined water utilized for internal & community use andremaining 19.95 % is retained for future use and ground water recharging.

C) Noise Pollution Control Measure:

For control of noise pollution various measures like propermaintenance of equipment green belt development around the mine and residential areablasting 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 majorenvironmental mitigatory activities taken up by CIL. Reclamation of mined out areas arebeing 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 plantationareas in the opencast mines. Concurrent reclamation and rehabilitation of mined out areasare taken up for gainful land use. After technical reclamation is completed plantation iscarried out which is termed as biological reclamation.

Eco-restoration: For effective Bio-reclamation of disturbed landscientific studies are carried out to select suitable species of plants for afforestationon three tier plantation concept. Forest Research Institute (FRI) has been engaged by CILfor sharing their expertise in the field of eco-restoration in the reclaimed areas. ManyEco-restoration sites have been developed in subsidiary companies of CIL with technicalcollaboration of FRI.

Coal India Ltd. has a well-structured Vigilance Division at CorporateHQ-Kolkata headed by a Chief Vigilance Officer of the rank of Joint Secretary to Govt. ofIndia assisted by a multi-disciplinary team of vigilance officers. Similarly all of itseight subsidiaries have their independent Vigilance Units each headed by CVOs. CVO CILat the Corporate Office acts as a coordinating authority between Vigilance Departments ofsubsidiaries Ministry of Coal and the Central Vigilance Commission. CVO CIL at corporatelevel deals with complaints investigations and systemic improvements on issues havingmulti-subsidiary and often company-wide ramifications.

During the last three years Vigilance Division of CIL as a part ofthe preventive vigilance function studied several processes of CIL having tremendousoperational & financial implications and developed specific system improvementsuggestions for the management after thorough data analysis using modern data analytictools and sometimes accompanied by field experiments. Some of these studies attempted forthe first time ever which crystalized into actionable and implementable suggestions theimplementation of which ensued immense benefits for the company are briefly summarizedbelow:

"Mission Productivity Maximization":

Dumpers procured by CIL constitute the major portion of Capexinvestment running into thousands of Crores of Rupees. After stud and consultations withall equipment manufacturers Vigilance Department detected that most of the dumpersdeployed by CIL in mines are having an on-board computer system named Pay Load MonitoringSystem (PLMS) that has elaborate provision for generating critical information aboutnumber of trips payload weight time taken and distance covered in each trip dieselconsumption etc.. If the data is downloaded and analysed on regular basis it can givegreat insights into the operational effectiveness including loading pattern cycle timesand fuel consumption per trip. This has great utility in productivity improvement andbetter operational control. Although such system was available for more than eight yearsit had not been put into effective utilization for improving the productivity anddetection of vulnerabilities in the coal production chain.

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

Analysis of Transit Losses:

Most of the coal (80%) produced in India is dispatched to the domesticcoal-based power plants through Rail. In the past there has been several grievances fromthe consumers regarding short-receipt of coal in transit to their power plants. In-depthstudy was entrusted to Vigilance to verify the same. Such data-driven study had not beenundertaken in the past. The study not only compared the coal dispatched by CIL to randomlyselected domestic power plants with the receipt of coal reported by them to CentralElectricity Authority but also did such comparison for the entire domestic coal supplysector of India. This data driven dispatch vs. receipt study conclusively established thatthe loss during transit between dispatch and receipt points is extremely minimal andwithin the expected tolerance limit of the weight measuring instruments.

Rapid Loading Systems:

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

Mission- Quality Management:

In the last financial year CIL Vigilance Division embarked upon thispreventive vigilance exercise to study the entire quality determination process chain ofCIL and its subsidiary coal companies aided by modern data analytic tools. CVO CILexamined consignment-quality-test results of more than 1.2 million samples spanning overfour years and representing a quantity of 1625 Million Tonnes of coal. Insights gainedfrom this study altered certain fundamental perceptions about coal quality quality asurance quality control and customer satisfaction. Very elaborate systemic suggestionshave been presented by CVO CIL through multiple Advisories which were discussed at thehighest level. Effective implementation of these suggestions has secured rich dividends tothe company in the form of quality bonus.

Expediting of TPA Test results & Referee Results:

The intensive study on referee results of coal samples has revealedexcessive delay in obtaining referee results causes for which were studied and suggestedmeasures for timely furnishing of referee results so that the sale transactions can bebrought to timely conclusion. It was recommended that CIL might explore a mechanism toachieve TPA test result availability with in a period of 5 days by incorporating mandatorytime clause in the TPA contracts. This will help in reducing the inordinate delay andmultiple billi s.

Mission- Underloading Minimization:

The entire process of Rail loading and incurring of underloadingcharges was studied in great depth by Vigilance Division in view of the inherentcomplexities involved and suggested various systemic improvement suggestions. Theimplementation of these suggestions by the management successfully curbed the risingtrend of underloading and resulted in reducing the underloading charges drastically.

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

Punitive Vigilance: The Vigilance Units of CIL and its subsidiariesundertook numerous intensive examinations surprise checks and investigations leading topunitive actions on 217 officials during the year.

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