Cola India Limited has signed MOU with Indian Port Rail Corporation Limited (IPRCL) for building rail infrastructure at coal mines. CIL is in process of improving the coal mine transport infrastructure. As Per MoU IPRCL will undertake feasibility studies, project reports, railway approval, project management consultancy, execution of work, and operation and maintenance of sidings.
