FROM CMD's DESK

You might be aware that since beginning of 2011-12 we had chalked out a firm programme for achieving the target for this fiscal.  The prime inputs are Rapid Mechanisation of all the manual underground mines by introduction of Mass Production technology, Conversion of manual district into fully mechanised SDL/LHD districts.  We have ordered 113 SDLs, out of which more than 40 SDLs have already been received and are at different stages of commissioning. The introduction of Roof Bolting machine is also in its final stage.  These steps will not only enhance production and productivity of underground mines, but will also improve the safety standard of our underground mines to a great extent. 

So far as Mass Production technology is
concerned, we are already operating two Continuous Miners – one each at Jhanjra and Sarpi.  The work order for the 2nd Continuous Miner and Powered Support Longwall at Jhanjra has already been issued.
To augment the opencast production, expansion of different OCPs – both in Rajmahal and Raniganj field is in progress. One of the significant achievements is in principle approval of forestry clearance of Hura ‘C’ project and Stage I forestry clearance for Chitra OC. This will definitely help in augmenting coal production from Opencast.   We have already started number of small hired OC patches which will not only add to the production of the Company, but will also help in curbing illegal mining to a great extent.


As a result of above actions, the Company has registered a positive growth during the first quarter of the financial year and has earned a profit of Rs.152 Cr for the first time in the history of the Company.  I believe that it is the beginning of transformation of a sick company into a highly profit making company in future.  I strongly believe that with the coordination & active participation of all the stakeholders we shall be able to achieve the goal of bringing out this Company from BIFR very soon.

ECL is not only dedicated about increasing production by following safety measures, it is also vigilant about the CSR activities for its employees and people of this industrial belt through organized medical check up, supplying potable water, construction of roads, providing educational facilities and all round development of the community at large. Efforts of State/District Administration is appreciated for the cause of curbing illegal mining and theft of coal.
