Western Coalfields Limited was incorporated after nationalization of coal mines in India in 1975. It is considered as one of the largest coal producing company of country as well as one among the eight subsidiaries that are wholly owned by Coal India Limited. Head office of WCL is situated at Nagpur. Moreover the company owns a total of 84 mines along with all the private sector coal mines that spread through Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.
The company is entitled with a category of Miniratna status on 15th March, 2007 by the government of India under the administrative control of Ministry of Coal.
Keeping in mind the ease of administration, government of India decided to bifurcate WCL and emergence of new company named south eastern coalfields limited took place. A major part of power houses along with industries related to steel, cement, fertilizer, paper, chemical and brick consume the coal of WCL. These industries are mostly situated in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Punjab, Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh. Since coal is a primary source of energy production therefore it contributes in 50% of commercial energy consumption and 78% of domestic coal production in India. The estimated turnover of the company in year 2012-2011 is approximately Rs.7073.44 Crores with a profit of Rs.1067.97 Crores.
Along with being the largest coal producer WCL is also largest corporate employer with a staff of about 3.8 Lakh employees.
In order to meet the new goals and challenges related to hydro projects the company needs some talented and dynamic candidates who can serve the organisation.
