CIL may Face Leadership Crisis Soon
Kolkata: Top bosses at Coal India have recently realised that it is slated to run into serious leadership crisis 4-5 years from now, when there won’t be any adequately experienced general managers to run the state-run company.
General managers are the senior-most non-board level executives and every department requires at least one to run smoothly. Additionally, each coal-bearing area at all its coal producing subsidiaries has one or two general managers depending on the size of the coalfield. At present there are more than 500 general managers in Coal India and subsidiaries who take care of most day-to-day groundlevel activities.
In an effort to make sure the problem is not repeated in the future, the company has recently engaged IIT-Dhanbad for working out its manpower requirement for the next ten years.
