“The state government is committed to provide necessary protection to the industry,” said Dubey, the chief guest at an event in Dhanbad.

Federation of Dhanbad Zila Chamber of Commerce and Industry in association with Jharkhand chapter of Associated Chamber of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham) had organised a daylong seminar on new prospects in coal industry at BCCL’s community centre at Koylanagar.

The participants deliberated on fresh avenues for growth in coal business in Jharkhand.
