Parliament was informed that the country has imported 51.84 million tonnes of coking coal in FY19. Coal Minister Mr Pralhad Joshi said in a reply to the Rajya Sabha “The entire demand of coking coal is not met from domestic production as the supply of high quality coal/ coking coal in the country is limited and thus no option is left but to resort to import of coking coal. During 2018-19, coking coal import stood at 51.84 million tonnes.

Mr Joshi said that “Reduction in Import of coal in the country is always a priority area of the Government.”
