3. COAL MARKETING
3.1 Sale of Coal
The raw coal offtake during 2020-21 was 574.48 Mill Tes [including 1.8Mill Tes of coal purchased from Odisha Coal and Power Limited (OCPL) and resold by MCL interms of the provisions for sale of excess coal by OCPL to CIL as per the Coal Mine
Development and Production Agreement entered between Government ofIndia and OCPL and 0.7 MT of coal which was sold from Talabira mines through e-auction asper guidelines of Ministry of Coal] compared to 581.92 Mill Tes during 2019-20. Althoughthere was a decline of 21% in offtake in the first quarter due to Covid pandemic inducedlockdown company with its efforts reversed the trend and achieved a growth of 6% in theremaining period of the year restricting the decline in offtake only by 1.3% during2020-21 compared to 2019-20.
Company-wise target vis--vis actual off-take for 2020-21 compared to2019-20 are shown in Annexure-5. z Some of the causes that attributed to the dip incoal offtake during 2020-21 compared to last year are as under: a) Inspite of the demandprojection of 526 MT projection given by MOP for the Power sector on CIL during the fiscal2020-21 only 444.97 MT of coal had been lifted by the sector and which is even below thelast year intake by 4% b) Negative growth of -21% in the first quarter due to country widelockdown 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 23.6rakes/day last year. e) Strike at Taparia by villagers since 19th Jan' 21 till theend of the financial year in protest of poor condition of Bankibahal to Taparia Roadaffected road dispatch to the extent of 2.5 million Tonnes (approx 35000 tes/day) fromKulda OCP & Garjanbahal OCP at MCL. f) Some unforeseen constraints in sizing crushingand transportation of coal also hindered the coal dispatches in SECL and WCL. z Despatchof coal and coal products during 2020-21 was at 573.60 MT. 444.97 Mill Tes of CIL coal wasdespatched to the major consumers of coal i.e. the power sector consumers. Sector-wisebreak-up of dispatch of coal & coal products for 2020-21 against the target and lastyear's actual is given in Annexure-6. z Auction of coal through Spote-Auction Special Spot e-Auction Special Forward e-Auction for Power and Exclusivee-Auction for Non-Power schemes had continued during 2020-21. In addition a new e-Auctionscheme was introduced during 2020-21 i.e.
Special Spot e- auction scheme for Import Substitution (SSEA-IMS) withthe aim to substitute imported coal with domestic coal in consonance with the spirit of"Aatmanirbhar Bharat". z In the backdrop of the depressed market scenarioarising out of lockdown CIL took series of measures to stimulate demand. Some of them areas under: a) The Reserve price of different e-auction was pegged at par with the notifiedprice for the period Apr-Sep'20. b) The Performance Incentive for Power FSAs had beenwaived for entire Financial Year (FY) of 2020-21. c) The Force majeure relief was extendedto FSA Consumers for the period between April'20 & May'20 following the GOIguidelines. d) The Non-power sector FSA consumers were allowed to book unlifted/unbookedquantity in the subsequent months within FY' 2020-21. e) The facility of conversionof mode of supply from Road to Rail and vice versa was also provided tocustomers/consumers. f) Additional payment mode option of IRLC/Usance LC was provided tothe consumers. g) Power sector was allowed to book up to 120% of their ACQ. h) Powersector was also given option to increase the trigger level from 75% to 80% i) In case ofthe hinterland plants linkages were granted by SLC(LT) at 90% of the normative requirementof 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 normativerequirement. z In spite of the subdued demand scenario due to Covid-19 CIL achieved amajor milestone during FY 2020-21 by successfully booking 124 MT of coal under E-auctionchannel. This is the highest booking of coal under E-auction since its inceptionsurpassing the previous highest booking of 113.6 MT achieved in FY 2016-17. The quantitybooked under E-auction during 2019-20 was around 66 MT.
3.2 Long term demand creation z Additional long-term demands arecreated through linkages allotted through the below mentioned schemes formulated by thegovernment: 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 bythe government on 15th Feb' 2016.
Until 2020-21 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 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 ParaB(i) of SHAKTI with 6 Central/State Gencos for an ACQ of 18.809 MT as on 31.3.2021 Threerounds of auction have been conducted under Para B (ii) of SHAKTI wherein linkages of32.95 MTPA has been booked by the power plants out of which FSAs for 31.32 MTPA had beenexecuted until 2020-21. The levelized discounts in tariff offered by the power plants inthe 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 bythe 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 SHAKTIpolicy were also conducted during 2020-21 for all the four quarters of the financial yearwherein 2.97 MT was booked by the power plants. Out of this FSAs for 2.73 MT was executedby the power plants.
B. Auction of coal linkages to Non-Regulated Sector:
Fresh linkages to consumers in Non-Regulated Sector (NRS) are grantedthrough auction linkages conducted in terms of the policy formulated by the government on15th Feb' 2016. The coal against the linkages secured in the linkage auctions aresupplied under FSAs to be executed for a period of 5 years the tenure of which can beextended further for 5 years upon mutual consent. In case of Steel Sector the FSA tenurehas 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 4.19MTPA 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 calculationmethodology in the scheme/system as per direction of MoC and subsequently due tovolatile market arising out of lockdown. Once the market stabilizes CIL will commencelinkage 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 premiumof 19.37% over the Notified Price. The additional premium shall be applicable throughoutthe tenure of these FSAs over the notified price applicable from time to time for thesupplies.
3.3 Long term demand committed through FSAs:
Considering the FSAs executed earlier with the power plants under theprovisions of NCDP and FSAs executed under various provisions of SHAKTI the operativelinkage for a total quantity of about 582 MTPA exists with the Power Sector as on 31stMar' 2021 which is bound by a long term supply commitments through FSAs.
The total commitments with Non-Power consumers including the ACQagainst the operative FSAs executed under the earlier linkage regime under NCDP linkagessecured under the linkage auction policy for Non-Regulated Sector notified by thegovernment on 15th Feb' 2016 and the FSAs executed with State Nominated Agenciesstands at 86 MT as on 31st Mar' 2021.
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 z 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 have the option for quality assessment ofthe supplies through independent third-party sampling agencies. In order to ensure supplyof good quality/sized coal two reputed global quality assurance service providers namelyCOTECNA Inspection India Private Limited and SGS India Private Limited have been engagedin addition to the existing third-party agencies for undertaking the job of sampling andanalysis of coal samples at loading end in CIL subsidiaries.
In order to monitor coal quality a portal UTTAM' (UnlockingTransparency by Third Party Assessment of Mined Coal) has been launched by CIL to capturethe entire cycle of sample. With the help of this portal information of coal quality onregular basis is accessible to Consumers. The coal companies and CIL can monitor the samethrough web based Coal Quality Monitoring Portal'.
Out of 58 coal testing laboratories across the subsidiary companies ofCIL 50 laboratories are now NABL accredited and accreditation process is underway for thebalance 08 laboratories.
As the result of conscious and continuous measures taken towardsquality maintenance the gap between the weighted average of declared and analyzed GCV ofcoal reduced remarkably to 23 Kcal/Kg in 2020-21 from 61 Kcal/Kg in 2019-20 narrowingdown the variation well within one GCV band. z 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 year
2020-21 also. Under the ambit of the linkage rationalization policynotified by the government on 15th May' 2018 sources of linkage for 11 MTPA for theState / Central Gencos was rationalized in 2020-21 yielding a potential savings intransportation cost by about Rs1167 crs. Rationalization in respect of IPPs is in theprocess.
3.5 Coal Beneficiation:
CIL is presently operating 13 Coal Washeries with a total washingcapacity of 35.38 MTY. Out of these 11 are coking coal washeries and balance 2 arenon-coking with capacities of 24.38 MTY and 11 MTY respectively. The total washed coalproduction including middlings from these existing washeries during 2020- 21 was about12.29 MT.
CIL had commissioned Patherdih 1 (5 MTY) which is under commercialoperation since July 2020. To enhance the beneficiation capacity of coking coal CIL issetting up further 4 new Washeries in BCCL having total throughput capacity of 12 MTY. Outof these 3 are under construction (9.5 MTY) and 1 (2.5 MTY) under tendering. 2 cokingcoal washeries are also being set up in CCL with a total capacity of 7 MTY. Thesewasheries are expected to be operational between 2021 and 2023. More washeries are beingexplored to wash the surplus coking coal to minimize import of coking coal for SteelSector.
CIL also has plans for setting up non-coking coal washeries in MCL. Oneis under construction and if more demand is there for beneficiated coal at value addedprices 2 more washeries may be set up.

Physical Progress is about 22% as on 31st March 2021.
7.4 Achievement in Acquisition and Possession of land:
In all the subsidiaries of Coal India the major portion of land ispossessed 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 andnotification 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 possessionin different Subsidiaries of Coal India.
7.5 System Improvement in Project Monitoring:
CIL had developed WEB Based Online Monitoring System for monitoringimplementation of coal projects. The portal has all important information related tosalient features Land R&R EC Production financial information Milestones etc.which is updated regularly. The progress of projects are reviewed based on the informationuploaded on the portal.
Apart from this portal the progress of implementation of all theongoing projects costing more than Rs 20 Crores. are being monitored through MasterControl Networks (MCNs) developed in MS project software and uploaded in project server.
These networks are updated regularly online. The important informationof these MCNs are fetched on Dashboard created on Power BI for decision making at higherlevel.
Crucial issues are also being uploaded by CIL and its SubsidiaryCompanies on the e-CPMP Portal of MOC and MOC is vigorously following up with the StateGovernments and other associated ministries by holding meetings with concerned officialsto expedite EC & FC clearances.
7.6 One Billion Coal Production Programme
Based on the assessment of demand projection in the country andconsequent share of CIL CIL had prepared a road map for 1 Bt. coal production by the year2023-24. 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 COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a trend of subdued demandacross all segments of the economy due to which the demand for coal has taken a severebeating during FY21.This has resulted into low offtake and high pit head stock. Deploymentof resources by Contractors especially in various infrastructure projects was affectedresulting in slow progress. It was further envisaged that this trend is likely to continueas long as the pandemic and its effects persist.
In view of the above scenario the pace of implementation of 1 Btprogramme shall definitely be governed by coal demand scenario. Though CIL is all set forimplementing the proposed programme on Best-Effort basis for achieving the targets yet inview of the projections of low demand from power sector and accumulated pithead stock thereview of the programme will be taken up with MoC to avoid lot of wastage of resources andfurther addition to already huge idle inventory of coal which shall prevent losses due toquality deterioration incipient fire and pilferage. The review shall also prevent furtheraddition to already accumulated large amount of Trade receivables.

24. VIGILANCE DIVISION
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 at thelevel of Director to GoI.
CVO CIL at the Corporate Office acts as a coordinating authoritybetween Vigilance Departments of Subsidiaries Ministry of Coal and the CVC. ChiefVigilance Officer at corporate office deals with complaints investigations and systemicimprovements on issues having multi-subsidiary and often company-wide implications.
During the last two years Vigilance Division of CIL as a part oftheir preventive vigilance function explored several processes having tremendousoperational & financial implications and developed practical suggestions successfullyfor the management using modern data analytic tools and sometimes accompanied by fieldexperiments. Some of these studies attempted for the first time ever which crystalizedinto actionable and implementable suggestions for management the implementation of whichderived immense benefits for the company are briefly summarized below: z Study andsystemic suggestions on the phenomenon of under-loading of railway rakes: Till 2018-19underloading of coal dispatched to various consumers and the resultant under loadingcharges paid by the coal companies had been increasing at an abnormal rate reaching to alevel of Rs772 crores in 2018-19 from Rs332 crores in 2014-15. Despite several attemptsmade in the past through contractual and technological interventions to curb this trendno significant impact could be made.
In view of the inherent complexities involved the entire process wasstudied in great depth by Vigilance Division which resulted into various systemicimprovement suggestions. The implementation of these suggestions by the managementsuccessfully curbed the rising trend of underloading and resulted in reducing theunderloading charges to a level of Rs530 crores in 2019-20 and further to a level of Rs467crores in 2020-21. The absolute saving to CIL due to this single systemic improvementstood at Rs242 crores and Rs63 crores in 2019-20 and 2020-21 respectively. The progressivereduction of underloading charges in the financial year 2020-21 is more significantconsidering the fact that this year recorded the highest ever increase in coal dispatch byrail (324.8 Mill.T in 2020-21 as against 282.8 Mill.T in 2019-20) whichestablishes sustainable nature of such system improvements.
z Vigilance Division made an in-depth studies on various policies andprocesses related to measurement of coal and overburden two core activities in coalmining. The studies revealed several vulnerabilities which had huge ramification not onlyin the investigation of coal shortage cases and excess payment cases for overburdenremoval but also in the accuracy and efficiency of measurement of coal stock and OBremoval. These suggestions led to embarking upon certain fundamental changes in theUniform Code commonly known as Yellow Book after nine years of its first revisionunveiled by the Hon'ble Minister of Coal on CIL's Foundation Day-2020.
In the quest for fast and accurate measurement of extracted materialduring mining CIL has always been upgrading its instruments for measurement. CIL has beenthe industry leader in introducing the latest Terrestrial Laser Based technology formeasurements. The study undertaken by Vigilance Division into the functioning of 3D TLSresulted in making these instruments more efficiently and optimally utilized which werebeing used for in-situ overburden measurement earlier. For the first time CIL decided toadopt 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 TLSby a substantial margin. z In the current financial year CIL Vigilance Division embarkedupon a preventive vigilance exercise called "Mission Quality Management"(MQM) to study the entire quality determination process chain of CIL and its Subsidiarycoal companies aided by modern data analytic tools. CVO CIL examinedconsignment-quality-test results of more than 1.2 million samples spanning over fouryears and representing a quantity of 1625 Million Tonnes of coal. Insights gained fromthis study altered certain fundamental perceptions about coal quality quality assurancequality control and customer satisfaction. Very elaborate systemic suggestions have beenpresented by CVO CIL through multiple Advisories which were discussed at the highestlevel. Effective implementation of these suggestions has secured rich dividends to thecompany in the form of quality bonus during 2020-'21.
In order to isolate and quantify intrinsic factors which contribute toquality variations several field experiments were conducted in collaboration with minemanagements under the guidance of CVO CIL to determine the extent of in-seam variation incalorific value of coal in some of the major seams of five coal companies. z During theyear 2020-'21 CIL Vigilance Division received 722 complaints including thoseforwarded by MoC CBI and CVC out of which 718 have been disposed during the year. zDespite the constraints posed by the prevailing COVID situation the Vigilance Units ofCIL and its subsidiaries undertook numerous intensive examinations surprise checks andinvestigations leading to punitive actions on 409 officials during the year. The majorareas of punitive action include procurement recruitment and measurement of coal stocksand overburden removed.
As directed by Central Vigilance Commission the Vigilance AwarenessWeek 2020 was observed in HQ and all Units of Coal India Ltd and its Subsidiaries from27.10.2020 to 02.11.2020 emphasizing the theme "Vigilant India- ProsperousIndia".
