India Sees 21Mn t Coal Supply Shortfall in April-June

India's federal power ministry expects a 21mn t shortfall in domestic coal supplies over April-June on logistical constraints, prompting the implementation of a distribution plan to help meet peak summer demand.

Domestic coal supplies, from state-controlled Coal India (CIL) and Singareni Collieries (SCCL) as well as captive blocks, are estimated at around 201mn t as compared with projected demand of 222mn t during the quarter, the ministry said in a letter dated 24 March to Indian states. The letter was reviewed by Argus. The potential supply-demand mismatch comes despite steps taken by authorities to ensure ample coal availability for utilities to meet electricity demand during the upcoming summer.
