Coal extraction beyond Non Effective Width (NEW) leads to subsidence and in turn deformation to surface topography. The subsidence impact aggravates under multi-seam workings. Panels were proposed to be depillared from XIV and XIII seams at Bhelatand Amalgamated colliery of Tata Steel, lying below multi-seam workings. The existence of villages and seasonal tanks at surface needs proper mining approach for the safety of surface structures. The paper deals with tensile and compressive strains likely to be developed by varying mining parameters, predicted with the help of influence function method, so as to mine safely below built up areas under a complex multi-seam working.
