 accounts of the Company for the year ended 31st March'2014. The
 Auditors' observations in terms of Section 217(3) of the Companies
 Act'1956 and Management Explanation are enclosed as Annexure IV.
 3.1 (a) Off-take of Raw Coal
 Off-take of raw coal continued to maintain its upward trend and reached
 471.58 million tonnes for fiscal ended March 2014, surpassing previous
 highest figure of 465.18 million tonnes achieved during the last year,
 i.e., an increase of 1.4 % over the last year. The overall raw coal
 off-take achieved was 95.8 % of the Annual Action Plan Target.
 Company-wise coal off-take:-
 The Company-wise target vis-à-vis actual off-take for 2013-14 and
 2012-13 are shown below:
                                               Figs. in million tonnes

 From the above, it may be seen that ECL and BCCL had not only exceeded
 their targets but also achieved positive growth over last year's
 off-take. Barring CCL, WCL and NEC all other coal companies registered
 a positive growth in off-take. Off-take from CCL was affected due to i)
 strike by contractor's workers, dismantling of Purnadih bridge as per
 the order of High Court ii) stringent restrictions imposed by State
 Government to ensure implementation of permissible carrying capacity
 causing resentment among the contractors and their reluctance to
 execute the contract iii) Naxalite/Extremists restricted loading from
 Tori siding for a considerable period of time and iv) frequent Bandhs /
 local agitation. At WCL, unprecedented heavy rain during monsoon had a
 devastating effect. Damaged roads and bridges, inundation of open-cast
 mines, badly affected coal transportation and off-take. Less lifting by
 MAHAGENCO-Power stations, MPEB-Sarni, HPGCL-Panipat, GEB-Ukai etc. also
 led to the shortfall.

 Sector-wise break-up of dispatch of coal and coal products during
 2013-14 against target and last year's actuals are given below:-

 3.2 Dispatch of coal and coal products by various modes:-
 Dispatch of coal and coal products during 2013-14 went upto 471.48
 million tonnes from 466.21 million tonnes registering a growth of 1.1
 %. Overall despatch by non-rail mode had been almost 104% of the
 target. Growth in despatches via rail mode was 3.3 % whereas overall
 non-rail mode it went down by 1.4 % compared to previous year. Movement
 by MGR was at par with last year. The performance could have been even
 better, but for less movement through MGR at ECL, NCL, MCL and WCL.
 Road dispatch of CIL was more than the target set.

 3. 3 Wagon Loading
 Overall wagon loading materialization was 90.3 % of target. This was
 achieved due to sustained efforts and regular coordination with
 railways at different levels. The increase in loading over last year
 was of 6.12 rakes per day. Company wise performance showed that ECL,
 NCL and SECL had exceeded last year's level of loading and almost
 achieved their target. Also, Rake loading performance was more than
 last year at BCCL, WCL and MCL.

 Note: Due to revision of wagon loading figures submitted by Railway
 Board, Kolkata and WCL, Nagpur for the year 2012-13 – the loading is
 shown as 184.04 rakes/day, instead of 186.4 rakes/day. The difference
 was caused due to inclusion of non-CIL loading by Railways in the
 loading figures of WCL which was subsequently corrected by Railways and
 The loading would have been more but for the following reasons:
 - Cyclone 'Phailin' followed by devastating rainfall in October' 2013.
 - At ECL, regulated lifting by many power utilities like WBPDCL, NTPC,
 DPL and RGTP-Hissar etc either, due to high stock at TPS end or
 non-payment of advance coal values as per terms of FSA and frequent
 railway restrictions due to movement of imported rakes/up-country
 - At CCL, Naxalite/Extremists restricted loading from Tori siding for a
 considerable period of time; frequent bandhs/ local agitation and
 regulated lifting by HPGCL power stations.
 - At NCL, regulated lifting by HPGCL, RRVUNL and Rajghat TPS and
 non-payment of advance coal values as per terms of FSA by the Power
 - At WCL, less lifting by MAHAGENCO-Power stations, MPEB-Sarni,
 HPGCL-Panipat, GEB-Ukai etc.
 - At SECL, regulated lifting by GEB & RRVUNL.
 - At MCL, contractor's workers went on strike at S-3 and S-4 siding of
 Talcher field during October'13-January'14 and restriction in
 transportation and loading activity imposed by State Govt of Odisha
 from 11.00 AM to 3.30 PM during summer due to excessive heat.
 3.4 Consumer satisfaction
 i) In order to ensure enhanced customer satisfaction, special emphasis
 has been given to quality management. Steps were taken to monitor
 quality right at the coalface apart from bringing further improvements
 in crushing, handling, loading and transport system.
 ii) CIL has built coal handling plants with capacity of about 296 MT
 per annum so as to maximize despatches of crushed/sized coal to the
 consumer.  In addition, washeries at BCCL, CCL, WCL and NCL have
 adequate crushing/sizing facilities of about 39.4 million tonnes.
 iii) Measures like picking of shale/stone, selective mining by
 conventional mode as well as by surface miners, adopting proper
 blasting procedure/technique for reducing the possibility of admixture
 of coal with over-burden materials, improved fragmentation of coal etc.
 are being taken for improving coal quality.
 iv) Surface Miners have been deployed for selective mining at some of
 the mines to improve the quality of coal. Action is being taken for
 deployment of more surface miners in other mines where geo-mining
 condition permits. Already 56 Surface Miners have been deployed in
 opencast mines and are working satisfactorily.
 v) Joint sampling system is in vogue for major coal consuming sectors
 e.g. power (utilities as well as captive), steel, cement, sponge iron
 covering more than 95% of total production of CIL. On overall basis,
 large consumers having annual contracted quantity of 0.4 MT or more and
 having FSA have been covered under sampling.
 vi) From 1st October, 2013, an independent 3rd party sampling and
 analysis system was introduced for more transparency in the system and
 for smooth operation in all the areas of subsidiary coal companies of
 CIL. Subsidiaries have procured 121 Bomb-Calorimeters for more accurate
 and transparent results of analysis of coal samples.  The sampling and
 analysis are being done in the presence of customers as per provision
 of FSA at loading end and based on the results the customers are paying
 the bills of coal as per analyzed grades.
 The achievement of grade conformity in respect of sampling and analysis
 had been to the tune of 95.63% (approx.) in respect of supplies to
 power sector during the joint sampling period i.e. from April 2013 to
 September 2013 and to the tune of 92.63% (approx.) during the third
 party sampling period i.e.  from October 2013 to March 2014.
 vii) Electronic weighbridges with the facility of electronic printout
 have been installed at rail loading points to ensure that coal
 dispatches are made only after proper weighment. For this purpose,
 subsidiaries have installed 169 weighbridges in the Railway Sidings and
 536 weighbridges for weighment of trucks. Subsidiaries have also taken
 actions for installation of standby weighbridges to ensure 100%
 viii) 25 Auto Mechanical Samplers are also working in subsidiaries for
 sampling of coal for the bulk consumers eliminating biasness in
 sampling process. Procurement of further AMSs is under process.
 3.5 Marketing of Coal:
 (A) Status of implementation of different provisions under New Coal
 Distribution Policy (NCDP) is as under:
 (i) For power stations, commissioned on or before 31.03.2009, 306
 million tonnes of coal had been considered to be supplied through
 legally enforceable Fuel Supply Agreements (FSA) with a trigger level
 of 90%. The total quantity covered under FSA against the allocation as
 on March'14 was 306 million tonnes.
 Apart from the above, 179 Letter of Assurances has been issued to power
 plants by subsidiary companies of CIL, as per the recommendations of
 various SLC (LT) Meetings, about 426.7 million tonnes of coal. Further,
 as per Presidential Directives dated 16-4-2012, and a revised directive
 dated 17-7-2013, the list of Power Plants and aggregate capacity were
 revised. A total 172 Thermal Power Plants (TPPs) were listed with an
 aggregate capacity of 78555 MW. Till 31.3.2014, 160 FSAs have been
 signed with Power Plants for an aggregate capacity of 72575 MW.
 However, out of the said capacity, TPPs having capacity of 56,937 MW
 have furnished a long term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) and qualify
 for coal supply subject to commissioning etc. After a successful
 meeting with NTPC in July 2013 to resolve the pending FSA issues,
 signing of FSA with NTPC power plants appeared in the Presidential
 Directives have completed for an aggregate plant capacity of 13510 MW
 which included both wholly owned and JV Plants of NTPC.
 (ii) In addition, 6 power plants having Pre-NCDP Long Term Linkage
 (commissioned and appearing in the MOC letter dated 17.02.2012 not
 having LOA) are drawing coal under FSA/MOU.
 (iii) Out of 1208 valid linked units other than power and steel plants
 with eligible FSA quantity of 76.24
 million tonnes, 875 units had executed FSAs for 58.64 million tonnes.
 FSAs of existing consumers were signed in 2008 with tenure of 5 years;
 many of the FSAs had expired and are under renewal process.
 (iv) For supply of coal to SME sector, 8 million tonnes was earmarked
 for allocation to agencies nominated by the State Govt's/ UT's. 17
 states / UT's sent their nomination of 24 state agencies for the year
 2013- 14 of which 19 state agencies have signed FSAs for 4.08 million
 tonnes and drawing coal accordingly.
 (v) After implementation of NCDP, 418 LOAs were also issued to
 consumers of sponge iron, CPP and cement as per the recommendations of
 various SLC (LT) meetings for a quantity of 65.09 million tonnes per
 annum. Out of these, 312 FSAs have been concluded till date for 40.81
 Million tonnes per annum.
 (vi) Under Forward E-Auction scheme the quantity allocated was 4.094
 million tonnes as against 4.961 million tonnes allocated during the
 last year. During the period under review, 58.125 million tonnes of
 coal was allocated under spot e- auction to the successful bidders as
 against 44.256 million tonnes of coal allocated during the last year.
 The notional gain through Spot E-auction over and above the notified
 price was 37.6% as against 49.9% during last year.
 (B) Initiative for overcoming logistic bottlenecks:
 CIL came out with a scheme for supply of coal As is – Where is basis
 to its power consumers under FSA, to be taken by the purchasers by
 arranging their own logistics from stock points. The scheme aimed at
 augmenting coal despatch capacity which is constrained due to various
 logistics issues restricting transportation to dispatch points.
 Similar provision is provided in the FSA for the Seller to offer coal
 upto 5% of the contracted quantity by using purchaser's own
 transportation arrangements, either by Road or Road cum Rail (R-C-R)
 mode in three coal companies namely CCL, MCL and SECL where logistics
 inadequacy has restrained coal supply potentials of these companies.
 (C) Financial Impact of Presidential Directive dated 17th July, 2013:
 Due to implementation of Presidential Directive dated 17th July, 2013,
 no compensation has been paid for short supplies of coal to the new
 power plants under the terms of FSA during the year. Copy of
 Presidential Directive is enclosed as Annexure VI.
 3.6 Coal Benef ciation
 CIL operates 17 coal washeries with a total capacity of 39.40 Mty. Out
 of these, 13 are coking coal washeries with a total capacity of 24.90
 Mty and 4 are non coking coal washeries with a total capacity of 14.50
 Mty. CIL had initiated action through global tender to establish 16
 coal washeries with a total capacity of 100.60 Mty, out of which 6 are
 coking coal washeries with a total capacity of 18.60 Mty and 10 are non
 coking coal washeries with a total capacity of 82.00 Mty.  Construction
 jobs at three washeries are in progress. Letter of Acceptance/Letter of
 Intimation of two washeries has been issued. Work in other washeries is
 at different stages of evaluation.

 Following are the details of activities that took place with various
 countries during 2013-14
 Indo-US Collaboration
 The 10th Indo-US Coal Working Group meeting was held on 10th March,
 2014 in New Delhi. The status of ongoing projects under ndo-US CWG was
 reviewed. Presentations were made by CMPDI/ CIL on new areas of
 The status of ongoing projects under Indo-US CWG is as follows:-
 a) Development of Coal Preparation Plant Simulator:
 The identified US consultant M/s Sharpe International LLC, USA (SI) was
 awarded the work in October 2009 for development of a Coal Preparation
 Plant Simulator. Total work was split into 18 activities out of which
 11 activities were completed. Later, SI expressed in October 2013 their
 inability to complete the work. US representatives were requested to
 take up the matter with the M/s Sharpe for a meaningful conclusion of
 the project.
 b) Cost Effective Technology for Beneficiation and Recovery of Fine
 Coal :
 US DOE had identified Virginia Tech University (VTU) for establishing
 an efficient technique for beneficiation and dewatering of Indian
 coking coal fines through a demonstration plant based on the
 technologies identified after pilot scale tests of Indian coking coal
 samples on different state-of-the- art equipment at VTU. A joint
 project proposal was drawn and approved by CIL R&D Board in Dec.  2010.
 The VTU, however, expressed its inability to sign an international
 agreement and as such the project could not be started. US
 representatives were requested to apprise different available
 technologies for fine coal beneficiation and recovery so that different
 projects can be taken up based on merit.
 c) Underground Coal Gasification (UCG):
 UCG, which may offer solution to untapped isolated coal deposits lying
 at depths, is one of the key areas under Indo-US collaboration. In
 order to promote R&D efforts for potential application of technological
 advances and to establish these in the Indian geo- mining condition, a
 brief proposal for capacity building has been sent by MoC to Lead
 Coordinator, India-US Coal Working Group, USA. It was proposed that the
 proposal would be taken up by CMPDI, with the budget available under
 R&D fund of Coal India Limited. UC-CIEE can be the co-implementing

 Action taken for Implementation of Master Plan Achievement upto
 A.  For Raniganj Coalf elds:
 1) Status of demographic survey
 Demographic survey work has been completed for all 126 sites. There are
 10 locations having no habitation, 3 locations with only ECL population
 and at 2 locations survey could not be completed due to strong public
 resistance. The final list has already been published which contains
 44598 households.
 Survey for valuation of structure has been done in all 80 locations out
 of 126 locations as there is no legal title holder (LTH) in 46
 locations. Number of LTH arrived at 5936 only which is very less. Hence
 submission of land documents has been extended to 08/04/2014 by
 conducting mini survey in a camp.
 41522 numbers of photo identity card (PIC) distributed out of 44598.
 Rest of PIC could not be distributed due to either photo mismatch or
 refusal to take the same by public. Hence corrective actions have been
 taken to distribute the remaining PIC's.
 2) Status of Land Acquisition
 Acquisition of land in Bonjehmari (1300 Acres) and Gourangdih (2300
 Acres) is under consideration of the West Bengal Govt. LA proposal has
 been submitted to LA Collector, Burdwan by ADDA.

 non-coal bearing area and Bijaynagar Mouza (26.00 Acres) at Jamuria
 block where coal is available at more than 600 mtr depth, have been
 identified and are being examined for feasibility of rehabilitation of
 people from unstable location.
 3) Diversion of Surface Infrastructure (Rail, Road and IOCL pipeline)
 i) Diversion of Railway line from unstable location:
 On the basis of geotechnical survey and a stability analysis of the
 working below the Andal-Sainthia Railway line of Pandaveswar Area, M/s
 CIMFR, Dhanbad had suggested for blind backfilling method to stabilize
 the working for 5-6 years. But no proven agency for doing the job of
 blind backfilling is known to both M/s CIMFR and ECL. Hence, High
 Powered Central Committee suggested for regular monitoring of the track
 line for any symptom of subsidence and also minimizing the speed of the
 train at this location.
 With regard to diversion of Andal-Sitarampur Railway line of Salanpur
 Area, the work has been awarded to M/s RITES for preparation of

 h) Status of Non-BCCL houses (54159 nos.) under the Master Plan 2352
 houses have been constructed in Belgoria rehabilitation Township
 Jharia Vihar and 1165 families have shifted till 31.03.2014. 1162
 affected families were given Rs. 10,000/- each as shifting allowance.
 i) Status of Fire Schemes
 Under Master Plan, 28 nos. of Fire schemes have been proposed in
 Phase-I to be formulated / prepared for dealing with 67 fires sites
 spread over 41 collieries. Till date, 11 fire schemes have been
 approved by Board and implemented, out of which 4 schemes have been
 completed. Further, for expediting the fire dealing process, excavation
 methods has been resorted to by deploying Hired HEMM at various mines
 of BCCL.
 j) Reduction in Fire Area
 The coal mining operations in Jharia Coalfield have been continuing for
 more than 100 years by the erstwhile private owners. Due to
 un-scientific mining methods adopted by them, large areas of coal mines
 were subjected to mine fires and subsidence which had resulted in
 serious social and environmental problems in the area. At the time of
 the nationalization of coal mines in 1972-73 and taking over the mines
 by BCCL, the situation of mine fires was grave and fire had extended to
 about 9 as assessed by a World Bank team.
 At present, fire area has been reduced from 9 sq.  km. to 2 as
 per the satellite survey done by National Remote Sensing Centre, ISRO,
 Deptt. of Space, Hyderabad. This could be achieved only due to the
 successful 'excavation method i.e. digging out of fiery coal' adopted
 by BCCL. This fact has also been acknowledged by NRSC in their report.
 The coal mine fire survey / study was instituted by BCCL through
 National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), ISRO, Department of Space,
 Hyderabad in August, 2013 for delineation of surface coal fires in
 Jharia Coalfield. NRSC has submitted their report in March 2014, in
 which they have concluded that the present fire area in the coalfield
 is only 2, which includes both over burden dump fire and active
 Further NRSC has planned another field study for ground truthing and
 GPR survey of subsidence/ unstable areas which is the 2nd component of
 k) International Expression of Interest
 Regarding latest technology for dealing with fire, International EOI
 has been fl oated by BCCL. No agency/company has responded for pre-EOI
 submission meeting held on 14.02.2014. BCCL is in the process of
 contacting different international experts in dealing fires directly.
 The EOI however, will be received up to 28.04.2014 and shall be opened
 on 29.04.2014.

 Group of Mines of CIL during the year.
 16.2 Pollution Control Measures and their Efficacy
 Measures are being taken to ensure that mining and coal beneficiation
 operations have minimum impact on the surrounding air quality, water
 quality, noise level and soil quality, hydro-geology, land use pattern
 and socio- economic profile of nearby population. The mitigation
 measures include dust suppression in mines through fixed and mobile
 water sprinklers. Effl uent treatment facilities for mine effl uent,
 workshop effl uent and CHP effl uent like oil and grease traps,
 sedimentation ponds and facilities for storage of treated water and its
 reuse have been provided for in all the major projects. Domestic
 wastewater treatment facilities have also been provided to deal with
 the domestic effl uent. The level of pollutants is being monitored on a
 routine basis to ascertain the efficacy of pollution control measures
 being taken in the projects. Additional remedial measures are taken, if
 required, to keep the pollutant level within the limits prescribed by
 regulatory bodies.
 Technical and biological reclamation of the mined out areas and the
 external overburden dumps are being taken by planting native species of
 plants for restoring the ecology.
 The level of pollutants is being monitored regularly as per the
 statutory guidelines to ascertain the efficacy of pollution control
 measures and for taking corrective actions as required.
