After crude, coal imports set to strain forex kitty 4.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The government may have to increasingly resort to coal imports for generating electricity and use its steadily declining foreign exchange reserves for the same if the current domestic coal crunch continues. Coal supplies to private and public sector enterprises have worsened to some extent as demand for power has remained strong, thus pushing up short-term purchase costs for power plants which are increasingly resorting to expensive coal imports. “In the event of rising demand and lack of domestic coal availability, imported coal usage could increase.

To achieve this, the state-run NTPC was supposed to take the lead in this initiative. However, things have not ...
