The Gevra Mine, operated by South Eastern Coalfields Limited (SECL), a subsidiary of Coal India Limited (CIL), is on its way to becoming Asia’s largest coal mine. Recent efforts to ramp up its annual production from 50 million tonnes to 70 million tonnes aim to meet the growing energy needs and enhance India’s coal production capacity. This significant expansion involves a hefty investment, addressing environmental clearance, and developing first-mile connectivity to streamline coal transportation. With a focus on infrastructure development, including rail projects as part of the PM Gati Shakti national master plan, the project also faces challenges such as environmental concerns and protests over land acquisition. Nonetheless, the expansion of the Gevra Mine is significant for India’s coal industry, promising to bolster the country’s position in the Asian coal market while ensuring employment opportunities and meeting energy demands​​​​​​​​​​​​​​.
