Coal import to be checked by rising domestic production

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 8:15 PM

The government's effort to increase domestic coal production and power demand falling with the onset of the winters will check coal imports, a senior coal ministry official has said. Power plants across the country had imported 6.6 MT coal in October, 43.5% higher than the monthly average import quantity recorded this year. In the same month, electricity demand had surged 14% year-on-year.
