JSW steel/Hindalco/JSPL: The Ministry of Coal has amended Mineral Concession Rules, 1960 to allow the sale of coal or lignite, on payment of an additional amount, by the lessee of a captive mine up to 50% of the total coal or lignite produced in a financial year, after meeting the requirement of the end-use plant linked with the mine. With this amendment, the Government has paved the way for releasing additional coal in the market by greater utilization of mining capacities of captive coal and lignite blocks, which were being only partly utilized owing to limited production of coal for meeting their captive needs. Availability of additional coal will ease pressure on power plants and will also aid in import substitution of coal. The move is likely to benefit over 100 captive coal and lignite blocks with over 500 million ton per annum Peak Rated Capacity as well as all coal and lignite bearing States. This permission is the government approval to Zee Business report in which it earlier said that the government has a plan to the sale of 50% of coal from the captive mines.
