In order to meet its requirement and increase the production of coking coal, Steel Authority of India (SAIL) plans to develop the Begunia coking coal seam of Raidih Mahatadih block at Raniganj in West Bengal as an underground mine.  

On December, 21 2012, the firm plans to hold a public hearing for the development of the seam. The company plans to develop the mine while one of its three mines, Chasnala opencast mine is in the exhausting stage. Besides, planning to develop Raidih Mahatadih block, the company also started two new projects at Tasra and Sitanala in the Jharia coalfield. Besides Chasnala, the company has two operating coal mines namely Jitpur and Ramnagar, which are producing coal for captive use in the steel plants. Out of its total requirement of 14 mn t, SAIL has managed to source about 3.5 million tonne of coking coal from Coal India and its own mines.Tasra
