This document contains maps showing the coal block boundaries vis-à-vis forest cover in 9 major coal fields across India.
These maps are an outcome of a joint exercise undertaken by Ministry of Environment & Forests through the Forest Survey of India (FSI) and the Ministry of Coal through the Central Mine Planning & Design Institute Limited (CMPDI), indicating the forest cover and location of already identified coal blocks.
The exercise is aimed to facilitate transparent and objective granting of forestry clearance to coal blocks based on a “Go – No Go” concept.
A similar exercise for the remaining major coal fields in the country is ongoing.
