The Deocha-Pachami coal block, in the east Indian state of West Bengal, which is billed as the largest single-location reserve in Asia, is likely to be developed by the state government in collaboration with mining majors in Poland.

Several rounds of talks have been held over the past month between officials of India’s federal Coal Ministry, the state government of West Bengal and senior Polish officials, wherein the government of Poland reiterated the offer of technology, mining solutions and high technology specialized equipment for developing the block with an estimated 2-billion tons of high grade coal reserve.


The joint development of Deocha-Pachami block by the West Bengal government and Polish miners was in the wake of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed last month between Poland’s Energy Ministry and India’s Coal Ministry.
