Piyush Goyal, Union Minister of Railways & Coal has launched ‘Grahak Sadak Koyla Vitaran App’ which is to benefit customers of Coal India Limited (CIL) lifting coal through road mode.
The app, launched recently in Kolkata on CIL’s Foundation Day is expected to achieve transparency in despatch operations, as a tool to monitor, whether the despatches are made on the fair principle of ‘First in First Out’ and would keep track of all the activities from issuance of Sale Order to physical delivery of coal by road.
The main features of the app are that it provides date-wise, truck-wise quantity of coal delivered against the Sale Orders and information related to Scheme-wise, Colliery-wise, Grade-wise, customer-wise details of Sale Orders issued during a period.
The app would also help in logistics planning for lifting of coal in tune with the loading programmes. It would result in improved planning of procurement, production and stock management by the customers.
