New Delhi, June 4: Power, Coal and New and Renewable Energy Minister Piyush Goyal on Thursday pushed for energy efficient means to save mounting electricity costs by at least $2 billion by 2019, and said the central government was keen to utilise technology to combat the coal mafia. He said the central government has pilot-run a project using GIS mapping of the entire coal mine area along with creating an electronic boundary. GPRS systems have been used in the entire process and CCTV cameras were installed for monitoring. In the project, computerised automated weigh-bridges have also been used, besides other "technological interventions". IANS
