The Cement Manufacturers Association (CMA) has engaged in a constructive interaction with Singareni Collieries Co. Ltd (SCCL). The meeting was organised by the CMA with the senior officials of SCCL in Hyderabad. It saw a commitment on both sides to work towards improving the offtake of coal by the cement industry.
The CMA has stated that it felt reassured by the positive response received from Dr J. Allwyn, Executive Director (Coal Movement) at SCCL, and N V Rajasekhar Rao, Deputy General Manager (Marketing) at SCCL. The senior officials from SCCL responded from a range of queries from the cement industry, largely concerning issues of quality, timely supplies, and third-party inspection methodology.
“SCCL has been customer centric and attentive to the feedback received from the cement industry,” said Sathia Raj, Chairman, of the CMA Committee of Energy and Fuel, and Joint President, Head Central Procurement Cell, at Ultratech Cement Ltd.
SCCL has agreed to hold quarterly interactions with the CMA, which would allow both sides to review the supply side situations and boost offtake by the cement industry.
“CMA is reassured by the productive and candid interaction with SCCL,” said Aparna Dutt Sharma, Secretary General of the CMA. “There is intent on both sides to overcome pain points to ensure the better offtake of quality coal by the cement industry.”
