SAMBALPUR: Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL) has created a distinct identity and reputation among coal consumers because of its quality consciousness, said Chairman-cum-Managing Director of MCL AN Sahay on Monday.
He was speaking at inaugural function of Quality Fortnight 2014-15 at MCL. Administering the “Quality Oath” to the employees, Sahay congratulated them for the company’s excellent performance in ensuring coal quality.
