  2. Mass Production Technology has been introduced in coking coal producing UG mines of CIL to enhance the raw coking coal production.
  3. CIL has taken steps regarding offering of coking coal blocks for production to private sector (including some discontinued mines) on revenue sharing basis through MDO route.
