India assures domestic coal supply to plants based on imported feedstock

India’s Coal Ministry has laid down rules to ensure coal supply to thermal power plants that were constructed based on imported coal as part of a strategy to achieve ‘zero dependency’ on coal imports over the next three years.
Rules and guidelines for supplying the thermal power generation sector require Coal India Limited (CIL) to commit assured supplies to all independent power producers (IPPs), which have constructed plants based on imported feedstock, a Coal Ministry official said.
