The Group of Ministers (GoM) on coal today decided to collect all the data about projects that are being affected due to coal production issues and would meet again on July 2.

“The GoM will meet again on July 2. Decisions (on a boarder basis) are likely to be taken at that time..,” the Coal Minister, Mr Sriprakash Jaiswal, told reporters here after the meeting. The panel, set up in February to sort out tussles between ministries on the environmental norms affecting projects, especially in the coal sector, met for the third time today. “In principle, it was decided that by July 2, the entire data should be collected. (Data) on pending as well as upcoming projects (related to coal) and expected production from these projects would be gathered (by the next meeting),” Mr Jaiswal said.
