Goa Government has set up a steering committee to monitor the progress in the development of the Raigarh coal block in Chhattisgarh. The block is allocated to the Goa Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC). In 2009, the state government was allocated the block, but coal extraction from the block has not commenced. Following this, the Goa Government has set up the steering committee consisting of the Principal Secretary (industries), Principal Secretary (mines), Principal Secretary (power), Chief Electrical Engineer and Managing Director of GIDC.
