CCL: A turnaround story

Resource Digest - - CONTENTS -

Cen­tral Coal­fields Ltd (CCL) has been able to break con­ven­tional thresh­olds and per­form way be­yond ex­pec­ta­tions dur­ing the pe­riod 2012-17. Large-scale and long-last­ing or­gan­i­sa­tional trans­for­ma­tions have been ef­fected, long-pend­ing com­plex prob­lems have been solved, the high­est ever pro­duc­tion has been achieved, en­vi­ron­men­tal and forestry clear­ances have been ob­tained, phys­i­cal pos­ses­sion of land has been taken, green­field projects have been opened, and rail­way projects have been planned, ex­pe­dited and com­pleted. All these achieve­ments could be made be­cause of the adop­tion of the Kayakalp Model of Gov­er­nance which lays em­pha­sis on the fol­low­ing:

• Trans­par­ent, bold, eth­i­cal and phil­an­thropic ap­proach

• Train­ing and De­vel­op­ment of Subor­di­nates

• Dis­ci­pline en­force­ment

• In­no­va­tion, Au­toma­tion - State of the Art Tech­nol­ogy

• Demo­cratic plan­ning - Au­to­cratic con­trol


Dur­ing the pe­riod 2009-10 to 2012-13, the com­pany’s coal pro­duc­tion was stag­nat­ing at around 48 mt. The com­pany was hold­ing in­ven­tory (coal stock) of about 16 mt ( about 33 per cent of an­nual pro­duc­tion) for years to­gether and be­cause of its age, coal stocks had in­di­ca­tions of spon­ta­neous heat­ing at many places. Many on­go­ing projects had an acute short­age of land as land own­ers were not giv­ing phys­i­cal pos­ses­sion of their land to CCL. The em­ploy­ees were de­mo­ti­vated and de­mor­alised.

The same com­pany — with the same set of em­ploy­ees — reg­is­tered a growth of 4.1 per cent in pro­duc­tion in 2013-14, 11.3 per cent in 2014-15, 10.2 per cent in 2015-16 and 9.3 per cent in 2016-17. The com­pany pro­duced 67.04 mt of coal, the high­est ever, against a tar­get of 67.0 mt and last year its achieve­ment of 61.32 mt was the third con­sec­u­tive year when CCL achieved the tar­get with 9 per cent plus growth. The com­pany is now the fastest grow­ing coal PSU of the coun­try. MOU RAT­ING OF CEN­TRAL COAL­FIELDS LTD: The MOU rat­ing of CCL used to be “very good” be­fore 2011-12. But dur­ing 2012-13, 2013-14 , 2014-15 and 2015-16 it has been “EX­CEL­LENT”. It is likely be “EX­CEL­LENT” again in 2016-17. GREEN­FIELD PROJECTS: Dur­ing a span of about four years, ie 201317, six green­field projects of about 40 mt ca­pac­ity (to be fur­ther ex­panded to over 100 mt) have been com­mis­sioned, which has no par­al­lel in the coal in­dus­try. The con­struc­tion of the Pi­par­war Rail­way Line was com­pleted in March 2017 af­ter the res­o­lu­tion of long-pend­ing dis­putes. Thwe oigi­nal date of com­mis­sion­ing of the rail­way line was March 1998.

ZERO GRIEV­ANCE COM­PANY: CCL is striv­ing to be­come a zero griev­ance com­pany. To achieve this, a Sa­mad­han Ken­dra (Sin­gle Win­dow Griev­ance Re­dres­sal Cell) was es­tab­lished in April 2012 and has been run­ning suc­cess­fully. Also, griev­ances, in gen­eral, have been grouped un­der 84 heads and sim­pli­fied re­me­dial mea­sures have been com­piled in a book­let, “SUNAHARE KAL KI ORE: Kayakalp Pustka”, which was re­leased by Min­is­ter of State for Coal, Power and NRE (I/C) on De­cem­ber 31, 2015. The sim­pli­fied pro­ce­dures are un­der im­ple­men­ta­tion.


The pri­or­i­ties of the com­pany has been re­de­fined in re­cent years in view of the pre­vail­ing so­cio-eco­nomic mi­lieu of Jhark­hand. It is now cen­tred on In­clu­sive growth through a se­ries of ini­tia­tives based on the KAYAKALP MODEL OF GOV­ER­NANCE. Our motto is — CCL has taken var­i­ous mea­sures in the field of skill de­vel­op­ment, ed­u­ca­tion, sports, health and drink­ing wa­ter for the well-be­ing of the peo­ple of Jhark­hand. • ED­U­CA­TION/ SKILL DE­VEL­OP­MENT
