Coal Import Monitoring System

The Coal Import Monitoring System (CIMS), which is to be implemented by the Central government from 1 February 2021, will require coal importers to submit advance information in an online system for coal and obtain an automatic registration number. The CIMS will be applicable to anthracite coal, bituminous coal, coking coal and steam coal. The objective here is to enable the government to monitor import of these categories of coal.
