Coal Ministry Offers Relaxation in Revision of Performance Bank Guarantee

Extends Bid Due Date For Commercial Coal Block Auction upto 30th January, 2023

By PIB Delhi

The Ministry of Coal had launched the 6th round and 2nd attempt of 5th round of commercial coal mines’ auction on November 03, 2022 for 141 coal mines.  Considering the demand from the industry and to promote Ease of Doing Business (EoDB), the Ministry  has decided that going forward the first revision in the Performance Bank Guarantee (PBG) would be done upon grant of mine opening permission for the respective coal mines.

As per the provisions of the tender document, the Performance Bank Guarantee (PBG) to be submitted for each successfully auctioned coal mine is to be revised annually based on the National Coal Index (NCI) for the month of April in the beginning of the year.  Since, NCI has become double since the launch of first commercial coal mine auctions in 2020, several representations were received from the industry for relaxation in PBG revision provisions.  It was requested that unprecedented increase in NCI has led to significant financial burden on successful bidders, whose mines are in the pre-operationalization stage, impacting fund availability for mine operationalization activities.

This investor friendly initiative is expected to reduce the financial burden on the bidders during the process of operationalisation of the coal mines and is expected to enhance participation from the bidders in the commercial coal mines’ auctions. In lieu of the same and to effectuate this amendment in the ongoing round of auction, the Ministry has extended the auction bid due date to January 30, 2023 from its earlier bid due date of January 13, 2023.
