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.
