This paper deals with an account of occurrences and causes behind disaster due to explosions in Indian mines. Principal causes and mechanism s of explosion, and precautions against explosion are also discussed. The review indicated that although frequency of occurrence of explosion inducted disasters have reduced over the years in coal mines of India, there is a need of implementation of modern technologies such as environmental tele-monitoring system in fire prone mines in general, and in degree II/III gassy mines in particular, to arrive at the zero-disaster regime. There is a need for an additional categorization of gassiness of seam such as degree IV gassy seam for the seam where rate of gas emission is more than m3 per tonne of coal raised. Arrangement for methane drainage or coal seam degasification or cal bed methane recovery should be given top priority on degree III and proposed degree IV mines
