Coal India to invest Rs 19,650 cr to strengthen rail infra

Coal India will invest an estimated Rs 19,650 crore to strengthen its rail infrastructure. The move will increase coal evacuation capacity of the PSU through rail mode by an additional 330 million tpa by FY23-24 when the production is expected to scale up significantly. 
The upcoming projects, some of which are already operational, would help CIL despatch increased volumes of coal through rail, above the existing capacity, from its greenfield and brownfield mining areas. 
The company is constructing three important railway lines from its own funds, on deposit basis, in Central Coalfields (CCL) and Mahanadi Coalfields (MCL) at an estimated capital of Rs 7,994 crore having 170 million tpa coal transportation capacity. 
Additionally, the company has forged four rail joint ventures with Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Odisha at a capital outlay of Rs 11,656 crore which would help move 160 million tpa of coal. 
Central Coalfields, Mahanadi Coalfields and South Eastern Coalfields are subsidiaries of CIL. These rail infra projects would boost evacuation. It is important to have a robust coal transport mechanism in place to cope up with increased volumes of production in ensuing years. 
Around 69 per cent of CIL's overall coal output is expected from CCL, MCL and SECL by FY25 and it is in these fields that the company is aggressively laying foundation for evacuation infrastructure. 
The doubling of Tori-Shivpur (CCL) railway line was already commissioned in December 2019 and the tripling of the line which is under process will enhance evacuation capacity to 100 million tpa from the existing 32 million tpa. 
Jharsuguda-Barpali-Sardega (MCL) single line was commissioned in April 2018 and the construction work for doubling of the line along with loading bulb at Barpali and a flyover complex at Jharsuguda are underway. 
Dovetailing of first-mile connectivity (FMC) projects of Sardega 20 million tpa and Lajkura 15 million tpa to this rail connectivity would lift MCL's transportation capacity additionally by 65 million tpa. 
The four rail JVs are in various stages of progress with the main rail corridor of Kharsia to Dharamjaigarh, a 74 km stretch under CERL in SECL,is already operational. CIL holds 64 percent stake in these JVs with the rest 36 percent made up by the rail PSUs and respective states.
