The coal supplies from two coal fields at Mand-Raigarh and Korba under South Eastern Coalfields (SECL) are set to increase with the opening of new railway track in Chhattisgarh.


The 44 km long new railway line in Chhattisgarh under East Rail Corridor from Kharsia to Korichapar commenced operations on 12 October 2019. Chhattisgarh East Railway (CERL), a special purpose vehicle (SPV) floated by SECL, the government of Chattisgarh and IRCON International undertook construction of 136 km East Rail Corridor at an investment of Rs 3,055 crore.

The East Rail Corridor will connect Kharsia, Korichapar, Dharamjaygarh and Korba. While SECL holds 64 percent stake in this SPV, the Chhattisgarh government and IRCON hold 10 percent and 26 percent respectively.

SECL has started loading two rakes of coal per day from Bijari, Baroud and Jampali mines of Mand-Raigarh which will increase further five to six rakes per day pushing up coal supplies to power stations in Maharashtra and Gujarat.

The plan includes adding more loading points on the track to increase loading quantities. The next leg of the 30 km line between Korichapar and Dharamjaygarh is likely to come up by the middle of 2020. With Dharamjaygarh finally getting connected to Korba -- a stretch of 62 km – CERL will see its execution of 136 km rail line.
