CIL to engage independent certifying body for quality control

Kolkata: Coal India today said it plans to engage an independent third party sampling to ensure the quality of coal it supplies to customers.

"We are thinking of engaging an independent third party sampling so that objectivity will be there. Some internationally accredited agency of high repute will be engaged," CIL chairman S Narsing Rao said today while replying to a question about quality issues raised by NTPC after the board meeting here.

CIL would seek a bid to select the agency in the next two-three months. Reuters

There would be third party certification for all coal customers of CIL which would overcome differences of quality, Rao said.

CIL would seek a bid to select the agency in the next two-three months.

At present, the coal sampling provision provides for a joint sampling mechanism at the loading end. Power producers have been urging that this mechanism was not efficient.
