India's coal ministry announced on Wednesday (29-06-2022) that it has asked the World Bank and other international organizations for help in repurposing its closed coal mines so that they would be ecologically sound and acceptable for commercial use.


The Ministry of Coal is a division of the Indian government with its main office in New Delhi. Pralhad Joshi, a Cabinet Minister, is in charge of the portfolio.


The Ministry of Coal is ultimately responsible for formulating policies and plans for the exploration and development of coal and lignite deposits, approving significant projects with high economic value, and making decisions about all pertinent matters.


Indian officials are scrambling to increase the amount of coal accessible to utilities since shortages are anticipated to be worse than previously anticipated in the July-September quarter as a result of anticipated high power demand.
