Government Focus On Faster and Environ-friendly Transportation of Coal

Context: Recently, the Ministry of Coal Undertakes Thirteen Railway Projects Under PM-Gati Shakti.

Key Points: 

  • The Ministry of Coal undertook 13 Railway Projects to develop multimodal connectivity in line with the goal of PM Gati Shakti. 
  • Four Railway projects under High Impact projects are also successfully mapped in the NMP portal. These will be developed in Jharkhand and Odisha and will facilitate the movement of coal with rapid logistics and wider connectivity for all the commercial miners.

This will help in a cleaner environment for coal transportation and gradually help the coal ministry to move away from road movement of coal in the country.
