Coal demand estimates for 2010-11

As per Annual Plan 2010-11, all India coal demand has been estimated at 656.31 million tonnes. Since the indigenous coal availability is estimated at 572.37 million tonnes, the gap is likely to be met through imports.

The coal demand by steel sector is estimated at 50.51 million tonnes and the indigenous availability at 17.92 million tonnes, leaving a gap of 32.59 million tonnes, which is required to be met through imports.

Demand for thermal coal for the power sector for 2010-11 has been estimated at 442.00 million tonnes and indigenous availability at 388.92 million tonnes. The gap of 53.08 million tonnes is to be met through the planned imports of 35 million tonnes by the power utilities, which is considered equivalent to about 53.08 million tonnes of indigenous variety, considering the higher calorific value of imported coal.
