Coal India Board is likely to meet on December 12 to discuss the issue of coal price pooling. In a meeting held in August, the CIL Board could not reach a consensus on price pooling mechanism and had also asked the management to come up with a workable business model for the same.

To offset the impact of high import costs, the Planning Commission had asked CIL to adopt a pooling formula on prices by combining rates of imported and domestic coal.

Price pooling is a mechanism to implement fuel supply agreement that the state run miner has signed with power companies to supply coal. If it is approved then 15 per cent supply of imported coal will be not in the cost plus method, but in pooling mechanism

CIL Board had approved the modified   FSA with 65 per cent domestic coal and cost plus for 15 per cent imported coal supply to meet 80 per cent assured supply of the contracted quantity to power companies.
If price pooling is implemented, power consumers will have to bear the impact, but it will be neutral to CIL.

Meanwhile, CIL and Central Electricity Authority (CEA) are jointly working on price pooling mechanism and will submit the report to Power Ministry for consideration.

However, West Bengal and Odisha governments haves expressed reservation on the proposed mechanism by stating that the pooling mechanism is irrelevant to power companies located very close to coal mines.
