The New Coal Distribution Policy (NCDP) was pronounced and circulated by Ministry of
Coal., Govt. of India vide O.M. No. 23011/4/2007-CPD dated 18.10.2007. As per the NCDP,
previous linkage system of distribution of Coal has been replaced with the system of
distribution of Coal through Fuel Supply Agreement as executed between Coal Companies and
erstwhile valid linked consumers.
Subsequently, in accordance with the NCDP as approved by Ministry of Coal, Govt. of
India, CIL communicated e-Auction Scheme 2007 (spot e-Auction) for sale of coal
under this scheme to the extent of around 10% of the planned production. SECL has

||% of gain over notified price
Forward e-Auction Scheme for consumers has also been launched in SECL. Coal
distribution through forward e-Auction is aimed at providing access to coal for such coal
consumers who wish to have an assured supply over a long period say one year. 8.39 lakh
tonnes coal were offered and 5.44 lakh tonnes coal were booked under this scheme during
9.5 Consumer Satisfaction:
In the present era of globalization and liberalization, the monopolistic position
enjoyed by Coal India is no longer a reality. Besides this, the dynamics of business
environment has seen the various policy initiatives in the direction of
reforms/liberalization of Coal Sector.
The availability of imported coal and other alternative sources of coal and fuel is now
a competitive reality.
In this changed scenario, coal quality and consumer satisfaction has become all the
more relevant than ever.
The Company has adopted itself to the changed environment which is evident from the
fact that there has not been a single major complaint recorded against the total dispatch
of 115.15 million tonnes. Thus, the Company maintained 100% consumer satisfaction during
the year 2011-12.
In order to ensure complaint free status on quantity front also, the Company has taken
action to install Electronic Weighbridges at all the sidings, as a result of which, the
Company has achieved 100% compliance in respect of installation of Weighbridges at the
During the year under report, 115.09 Million Tonnes of weighed coal and 106.89 Million
Tonnes of sized coal were dispatched out of the total dispatch of 115.15 Million Tonnes,
thus a growth of 5.62% in the dispatch of weighed coal was achieved.
SECL has adopted fully variable Gross Calorific Value (GCV) based system for grading
and pricing of NonCoking coals from existing Useful Heat Value (UHV) system w.e.f.
January 1, 2012 as per Gazette Notification No. 2440 dated 30.12.2011 of Ministry of Coal.
This is an international practice of trading of coal which has been recommended for
adoption by a number of high level committee including the Integrated Energy Policy
Committee. This system ensures a high degree of consistency in quality of coal supplies,
and result in high consumer satisfaction. The determination of GCV is being ensured
through Bomb Calorimeter in order to have optimum accuracy to gain the consumer
confidenceon this system. Further, this has also resulted into high degree of Consumer
