Coal deficit widens

EM NEWS BUREAU ,  Tuesday, October 18, 2011, 15:35 Hrs  [IST]

Untitled - 57The government has estimated that India's coal demand in 2011-12 will be 696 million tonnes, against which domestic production will be only around 554 million tonnes. India is expected to import 135 million tonnes and Coal India Ltd is likely to add 28 million tonnes to the coal availability by liquidating its stocks. With this, India's coal demand-supply gap will be in the region of 114 million tonnes. Rising consumption has led to the coal deficit steadily widening over the years. In 2008-09, coal deficit was pegged at 83 million tonnes.
