The Corporate Portal includes sections about Coal India’s corporate details, business information and media coverage. It also has interactive systems such as Tenders, Careers, Customer Management and Grievance Management that will allow Coal India’s stakeholders direct and real-time access to its Key Executives and core external processes. This is expected to enhance the stakeholder management process, bring transparency, timeliness and relevancy in information dissemination and management of public matters, and consequently build organisational visibility and credibility in India, and globally.
