3.4. India

Currently underground coal mining in India constitutes a small portion of total coal production, however the hazards associated with the underground mining account for major fatalities. The main hazards include roof falls, water inrush, explosion, fires and spontaneous combustion.

It is expected that the underground coal mining in India will play a strategic role and may even dominate the coal industry as emerging social and environmental issues might delay or even stop new open cut coal mine projects. Consequently the hazards in the underground coal mining will have to be properly managed.
