 Union minister of railways and coal, Piyush Goyal, has launched a mobile app — Grahak Sadak Koyla Vitaran to benefit Coal India Limited (CIL) customers lifting coal through road mode.

 
The app helps achieve transparency in despatch operations, as a tool to monitor whether the despatches comply with the fair principle of ‘first in first out’ and keeps track of all the activities from issuance of sale order to physical delivery of coal by road.
 
The main benefits of the app include easy accessibility of the information at the click of a button and bringing in transparency in the system of loading programme and despatch. It also helps in logistics planning for lifting of coal in tune with the loading programmes. It further helps in improved planning of procurement, production and stock management by the customers.
 
The main features are that it provides date-wise, truck-wise quantity of coal delivered against the sale orders and information related to scheme-wise, colliery-wise, grade-wise, customer-wise details of sale orders issued during a period.
 
Coal India has made ‘ease of doing business’ a major consumer commitment. The launching of the app is also one of the initiatives of CIL towards achieving the much cherished goal of ‘Digital India’ and transparency.
 
CIL in a move to rush more coal to power stations, coal supplies to plants located in shorter distances have been offered through road from available pithead stock. As a result, power plants located within 50 km to 60 km from the mines may take as much coal from the nearest mines as they can.
 
During 2016-17 despatch of coal through road mode had been about 140 million tonnes (MTs) out of the total despatch of 542 MTs by CIL.
