Expenditure on establishment, maintenance and upkeep of Eco-parks are funded by respective Coal/Lignite PSUs.

 The details of estimated funds for new eco-parks by Coal/Lignite PSUs are given at Annexure-II.

Eco-parks were developed by Coal/Lignite PSUs for recreational purpose of nearby localities and no revenue earned from these Eco-parks is spent on development of the mining areas. However, Kenapara Eco-Park, SECL, Chhattisgarh is run and maintained by local Self-Help Groups to promote mine tourism. These Self-Help Groups are also earning revenues from floating restaurant, pisciculture and boating facilities of the Kenapara Eco-park for their livelihood.
