Coal transportation norms

Union Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) is planning to reduce the distance of carrying the coal having more than 34 per cent ash content to the power plant from 1,000 km to 500 km from the pit-head. The Centre is also mulling to have coal washeries within 200-300 km of the pit-head so as to reduce the cost of transportation towards carrying ashes and minimise the fly ash pollution threat in the periphery of the plant site.
