·         Availability of infrastructural facilities like water, power, railway siding, reject dumping/storage area, etc.

·         Availability of inferior quality of coal.

·         The new opencast projects of capacity more than 2.5 Mty and not linked to pithead Thermal Power Stations.

·         Reserve of coal and life of linked mines.
