Background on Mine

The Rehar Underground Coal Mine Project of 0.31 MTPA on a mining lease area of 408.20 ha in Bisrampur coal block operated by South Eastern Coalfields Limited is located in village Getra, Tehsil Ambikapur, District Surguja, State Chhattisgarh, India. The project received environment clearance on 27 November 2002.[1] However, the project needs revalidation of its environment clearance as per the revised guidelines of the MoEF&CC, India.[2]

The Rehar coal block is divided in two blocks, Rehar East known as Rehar UG mine and Rehar West (Mani & Jogi) known as Gayatri coal mine.

An expansion of the project from 0.31 MTPA to 0.80 MTPA was planned and ToR was accordingly obtained from the MoEF&CC India on 24 August 2009[3] and accordingly a EIA report was prepared as well.[4] However, due to technical reasons it has not yet been done.
