Officers at Coal India Ltd on Thursday threatened that they would go on a countrywide dharna on September 24, if the management fails to fulfill their demand for a pay revision and other related issues.

According to P K Singh, Secretary General, Coal Mines Officer’s Association of India (CMOAI), officers of all the subsidiaries of CIL would also go on hunger strike from September 16 to 20, demanding pay revision, performance-related payment and promotion.
