Coal Miners Move SC Over May 31 Extension


SHILLONG: With the deadline to transport extracted coal ending on May 31, a local coal body has filed a case in the Supreme Court for extending the last date.
In a statement on Saturday, the State Co-ordination Committee of Coal Owners, Miners and Dealers Forum (SCCCOMDF) said it had, through the counsels on May 25, filed an application before the Supreme Court for extension of transportation of extracted coal for another six months.

Earlier, the Apex Court on September 21, 2016, had allowed transportation of the extracted coal till May 31.

The statement said according to State Government sources around 7-8 lakh metric tonnes of extracted coal are yet to be transported.
The chairman of SCCCOMDF, Sonny L Khyriem, said the coal miners could not complete the process of transportation to meet the deadline owing to certain problems. The case is likely to come up for hearing sometime in July.
