COAL AND COKE

                        There were 5 Coal and Coke Societies at present in the State. Formally the societies were procuring Coal from Coal Field directly and distributing the same to its members (cardholder) for their industries. The coal was used as fuel in the industries. Subsequently, due to change of the Government policy coal were allowed to be imported. Hence, members were not interested to purchase coal from the coal societies.   These societies have diversified their activities and engaged in supply of all inputs such as supply of yarn, slade, furniture, vessels etc. to their member units.
                        However, only the Tamil Nadu Brick and Tile Manufacturing society is now making supply of coal to its members and all other 4 societies have diversified their activities into other Engineering Service activities
