All coal mining lease (CML) holders/licensees in Nagaland have been informed that the assessing authority would inspect all the mines and carry out coal production assessment of each mine and realize advance coal royalty @ Rs.290/MT through the cheque/treasury challan against which coal challan would be issued to the responsible licensees.

In a press release, geology and mining director H.K.Chishi also informed the licensees not to allow non-licensees to transport coal under the strength of their coal challan.

Further, all non-licensees/illegal coal operators/ transporters have been requested to stop extraction of coal in the state with immediate effect.

The director stated that those non-licensees/illegal coal operators, who have already extracted and sacked coal before the coming into force of this notice, would be allowed to carry/transport their coal @ Rs.290+50% penalty/tone within a week.

However, those non-licensees/illegal coal operators, who intentionally violate government standing order and continue their illegal operation without obtaining CML would attract ten times penalty i.e. Rs.290+10 times penalty.

Meanwhile, all non-licensees/ illegal operators have been directed to withdraw their heavy mining machinery within ten days from the issue of this notice failing which a joint task force team, comprising of local administration, police, forest, pollution control board (PCB) and geology and mining would conduct surprise checking and seize all machineries found in the field.

Geology and mining director stated that henceforth, no more coal challan issued prior to this notice shall be entertained. Any licensees/transporters doing so shall be doing at their own risk and shall attract legal action as per the provisions of the Nagaland Coal Mining Rules, the director cautioned.
