Calcined Petroleum Coke (CPC) manufacturing industries have been granted an extension to furnish the necessary details to the Commission. This extension was granted by a notice dated November 16, 2023.
It may be recalled that the Supreme Court had delegated certain issues related to pet coke to the Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM) for decision-making. These issues encompass matters, including the allocation of petroleum coke (pet coke) to calciners.
Responding to the Supreme Court’s directive, the Commission has taken prompt action by constituting a dedicated Sub-Committee to address the complexities surrounding pet coke allocation.
The CPC manufacturing industries seeking the allocation of imported Raw Petroleum Coke (RPC) are required to furnish the necessary details to the Commission. The initial notice dated November 2, 2023, required these industries to submit the required information via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by November 14, 2023.
Now, in accordance with the decision of the Sub-Committee, the deadline for the submission of the specified information has been extended. CPC manufacturing industries are urged to provide the necessary details through email at email@example.com, ensuring submission by the revised deadline of November 21, 2023.
Consequences of Non-Compliance
It is crucial for CPC manufacturing industries to note that failing to provide the requisite details within the stipulated timeframe will carry consequences. The announcement reiterates that if any CPC manufacturing industry or unit does not submit the necessary information by November 21, 2023, it will be presumed that the unit does not wish to import Raw Petroleum Coke.
The Commission emphasizes the importance of timely and accurate information from the concerned industries to facilitate the decision-making process and ensure transparency in the allocation of pet coke resources.
