In the presence of Coal Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal, CMD of the Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC) B Surender Mohan firmly stated that the NLC has come out of the Jayamkondam project. Hailing NLC as the ‘Golden Company’ of the coal ministry during his visit to the firm on Thursday, Jaiswal appreciated the activities carried on by the company under its CSR programme.

While talking to reporters, Jaiswal said, “Many changes have taken place in the NLC in all spheres such as coal mining and power production, and the company has shown great improvement.”

Elaborating on NLC’s various projects, secretary of the Coal Ministry S K Srivastava said, “As far as Tamil Nadu is concerned NLC is currently installing TPS-II Expansion project, Neyveli New Thermal Power Project and Thoothukudi project. TPS-II Expansion project will start generating power in September this year and the Thoothukudi project will generate power in a year more. The electricity from these projects would be sourced to Tamil Nadu.”

He further said, “NLC has achieved more than the set target in all aspects with regard to mining and power generation. Ministry of coal is very proud of this company. All these could be possible only through the committed work force of the NLC and the dedicated set of officials.”
