"Coal India Limited (CIL) allocates coal to various States to cater to their
consumers through State Nominated Agencies (SNA) in small and medium sector (erstwhile
non-core sector) whose annual consumption is less than 4200 metric tonnes per annum
and are otherwise not having any access to purchase coal or conclude Fuel Supply
Agreement (FSA) for coal supplies with coal companies. Coal Allocation Monitoring
System (CAMS) is developed to monitor the allocation of coal by CIL to States, States
to SNA and SNA to such consumers in a transparent manner."
