The 10 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) capacity coal washery is estimated to be built at a cost of Rs 396 crore by October next year.

Swarup, who is on a three-day visit to the state, performed the ‘Bhoomi Puja’ this morning.

The washery will benefit the company, the common man and the country as a whole, Swarup said.

Notably, the Ib Valley Washery is one of the four 10 MTPA coal washeries (two each in Ib Valley Coalfields and Talcher Coalfields) being set-up by MCL which are expected to come up in 2017-18 financial year.
