Coal Requirement in 2020: A Bottom-up Analysis
Sehgal, Anurag; Tongia, Rahul | July 2016
In FY’14-15, the government announced an ambitious plan to produce 1.5 billion tonnes of coal domestically by 2020, an annual growth of almost 20 per cent. The announcement came at the back of the then chronic shortfall of coal. However, by the end of FY’15-16 India’s coal shortfall ended. In fact, power plants—which are the largest users of coal—reported an oversupply of coal, a situation mirrored in terms of power, with plant capacity growth outstripping power demand growth. The 1.5-billion tonne target was split between Coal India Limited (CIL) (and other smaller PSU producers) producing 1,000 MT and private (captive) producers contributing the remaining 500 MT by 2020.
