Background on Mine

The Amlai/New Amlai Underground Coal Mine Project operated by South Eastern Coalfields Limited, is a subsidiary of Coal India of capacity 0.45 million-tonnes-per-annum on an area of 724 Ha is located in village Amlai, Tehsil Burhar, District Shahdol, Madhya Pradesh, India. Public hearing for the project was conducted by the State Pollution Control Board on 30th August, 2003 and the environment clearance was granted on 9 June 2006.[1]

The Project area involved 383 ha of forest land, which is reportedly yet to be diverted for non- forestry purposes, as mandated under the Forest (Conservation) Act, 1980. However, Mine was closed on 20th September, 2011 due to exhaustion of coal reserves. Accordingly, revalidation of the said environmental clearance is required not for coal mining operations but to implement the Mine Closure Plan.[2]
