In a bid to facilitate steady supply of coal in a fair and transparent manner to Medium and Small Scale Enterprise (MSME) sector Coal India Limited (CIL), the Maharatna PSU that spearheads the coal production in the country, held a meeting with the State Governments recently at its headquarters in Kolkata. This meeting was first of its kind.
In a consumer friendly initiative CIL had invited all the State Government to discuss, threadbare, the details of coal supplies to MSMEs. The idea behind was to assess the problems of medium and small consumers to find remedial measures. The objective of the meeting was to put at ease the concern of the small consumers regarding their coal requirements and to reassure them of CIL’s commitment in easing coal supplies through their respective state government nominated agency. The meeting was attended by Director (Marketing), CIL, CVO, CIL and an official from Ministry of Coal.
