Emerging from superposition principle, resource theory of coherence plays crucial role in many information processing tasks. Recently, a generalization to this resource theory were investigated with respect to arbitrary positive operator valued measurement (POVM). Here we introduce the notion of Block Incoherent Operation (BIO), Strictly Block Incoherent Operation (SBIO) and Physically Block Incoherent Operation (PBIO) and provide analytical expression for Kraus operators of these operations. These free operations would be helpful to find out conditions of state transformations and could be implemented in various protocols. Characterization of these free operations in POVM based framework is also considered in this work. We provide upper bounds on maximum number of Kraus operators for BIO and also for SBIO.
