Singareni Collieries Company Limited Pays Rs. 6.38 Crores to S.C.Railway for the Bhadrachalam Road – Sattupalli New Railway Line

Sri Sutirtha Bhattacharya, Chairman & Managing Director, The Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) called o­n Shri G N Asthana, General Manager, South Central Railway (SCR) at Rail Nilayam today i.e. 6th August 2012 and presented a cheque to SCR for Rs. 6.38 Crores towards conducting the final location survey for the Bhadrachalam Road – Sattupalli New Railway Line.

The Bhadrachalam Road – Sattupalli New Railway Line is an important Project mainly planned to facilitate smooth movement of coal from Singareni Colleries.

The Brief Highlights of the Project are as under:

·SCCL is having three Open Cast Projects in Sattupalli Area – Jalagam Vengala Rao (JVR) Open Cast-I, JVR Open Cast-II and Kistaram Open Cast Project. The expected production from these three mines is about 6 Million Tonnes per annum.

·The distance between JVR OCP and nearest SCCL Coal Handling Plant (Rudrampur) is about 
55 Kms. It is not possible to transport 6 Million Tonnes of coal to the nearest rail head by road.

·Moreover, theMinistry of Environment & Forests has put a special condition that
“No Coal Transportation shall be undertaken by Road” from JVR OCP-II.

·Hence, this railway line is essential for movement of coal produced from JVR Group of mines.

·Due to change of policy in laying railway lines, Railways requested SCCL to bear the entire cost of the Project except land and transfer the same to Railways at no cost.

·The Project was sanctioned by Railways in 2010-11 at an estimated cost of Rs.337.50 Crores.

Salient Features of the Bhadrachalam Road – Sattupalli New Railway Line:

ØLength of the Railway Line :56.25 Kms Electrified

ØEstimated Cost:Rs.337.50 Crores

ØCost of land to be borne by Railways:Rs.19.04 Crores

ØCost of infrastructure 
to be borne by SCCL:Rs.318.64 Crores

ØApproximate quantity of Coal
to be transported per annum:6 Million Tonnes (for 25 years)
