Gujarat Mineral Development Corporation (GMDC) has unveiled a Rs 663-crore ‘Land and Resettlement and Rehabilitation plan’ for operationalising its first coal mine in Odisha. It involves the acquisition of 354 hectares of government and private land for the proposed ‘Baitarani-West’ coal mine. This is GMDC’s first project outside Gujarat. 

The company would begin its rehabilitation plan in the financial year 2024-25. The company has designed an R&R plan for 1,500 affected families living in and around three villages. The land acquisition plan for this mine in Odisha comprises 154 hectares of government land, and almost 200 hectares of private land.

Under the first compensation package, each family will receive about Rs 44 lakh as self-relocation and one-time cash payment, and a second package will offer a one-time cash payment of Rs 20 lakh per family and Rs 25,000 per month as annuity for 20 years. Once the plan is executed, GMDC will move towards opening the mine with a peak rated capacity of 15 million tpa, in the next five to six years.

In March 2023, GMDC won two coal blocks in Odisha - the Baitarani-West block in Angul district with geological reserves of 1,152 tonne, and the Burapahar block in Sundargarh district.
