Single Window System
Single Window Clearance System is the innovative endeavor of the Ministry of Coal conceptualized and launched on 11.01.2021 that facilitates to obtain clearances and approvals required for smooth operationalisation of coal mines in India as well as augmentation of coal production in the country through a single gateway. Various statutory provisions viz approval of Mining Plan and Mine Closure Plan, Grant of Mining Lease, Environment and Forest Clearances, Consent to Establish, Consent to Operate, Wild Life Clearance Permission for Explosive and Safety organization (PESO) for storage of Explosive, , Land Acquisition Module, Safety Management Plan (with DGMS), Central Ground Water clearance etc. are pre-requisite for starting of a coal mine.
These clearances are being granted by various Central Ministries and State Government departments/agencies. This portal maps all the statutory clearances required (covering Central Ministries as well as State Government departments/agencies) for starting of a coal mine. The portal is to map not only the relevant application formats but also map process flow for grant of the approval/clearances and integration with online portals through API.
To facilitate ease of doing business, a unified platform of SWCS is designed which includes already operational module for approval of mining plan and mine closure plan in a time bound manner and integration with Parivesh Portal Version 1.0, digital acceptance of objection under Section 8 (1) of Coal Bearing Areas (Acquisition & Development) Act, 1957, Consent Management System of Telangana& West Bengal. Further SRS study of Land Acquisition Module is also completed. The work of integration of Consent Management System is in process with other States where coal mines are located. Development of 5 yearly Submission report of approved mining plan is also under process.
Further Ministry of Coal has added in its kitty of SWCS Project Information & Management Module which was launched on 14.06.2022 and is live on the portal with screens PRIMS Agreement Form, Production Target Form and Daily Production report screens, Performance Bank Guarantee, Upfront payments etc. which is likely to facilitate project proponent as well as Ministry and State officials in monitoring and expeditious implementation of coal mines. Further development of Mine Opening Permission Module, Process flow study of exploration module and Mining Lease etc. are the next major targets to be achieved in development of this portal.
Also integration of SWCS portal of ministry of coal with National Single Window Clearance System is also being carried out as a part of Digital India for which PING API, Authentication API, Pull Document and Push Redirection API is completed. Project Proponents can now successfully register through NSWS Portal.Weblink: http://www.swcs.coal.gov.in
