10Meeting the Demand of coal Indian Economy provides robust demand of coalNational coal companies will not be able to meet the coal demand. Government of India is allocating captive coal blocks to match the rising demand.About 10% of coal required by India is being met by imports. Roughly 50% of total imports are contributed by coking coal.The setting up of the Coastal Ultra Mega Power Projects (UMPPs) based on imported coal has also been started.
12WORLD COAL FACTS World has - 700 BT of proven thermal coal reserves. Majority in USA,RUSSIA,CHINA & INDIAProven world reserve of thermal coal could sustain current demand for over 140 years. (Assuming thermal coal reserves drawn down at current rate of production of 5.0 BT/Year).

14Brief Analysis of coal facts There is a significant increase in coal consumption of about 41% during the period against previous 10 years period during which was about 16%.There is a steady increased demand of coal in Asia Pacific Region due to growing economy in India and China.The demand of coal in other parts of the world is declining.

17RAW COAL PRODUCTION IN INDIA Growth of coal production is 6-7% whereas demand for electricity has been growing at an average growth rate of 7% to 8% and demand supply gap has widened over the years.

20REASON FOR COAL SHORTAGE Growth in the coal sector not commensurate with nation’s requirement of +8% GDP growth.Slow clearance of projects. In some cases linked mines are yet to be developed even though the power projects have been implemented on schedule.Captive blocks are way behind schedule.Import coal materialization is less due to bottleneck in the ports and Railway
21REASON FOR DELAY IN DEVELOPMENT OF COAL BLOCKS Forest clearance for exploration.Most of the captive coal blocks are unexplored and need forest clearance before commencement of exploration.Environment and Forest clearance for the Coal mines.Delay in granting prospecting license.Land acquisition.Rail transportation of coal.
22Coal Availability vis-a vis Govt. Policy NCDP 2007 ensures 100% satisfaction level for the power utilities and supply through legally enforceable FSA.Annual action plan for coal production by CIL, the major coal producer of INDIA, projected supply demand mismatch anticipated in the terminal year of XIth & XIITH plan to the tune of 234 MMT & 185 MMT respectively.This supply demand mismatch hindering the policy implementation. For new projects, guaranted quantity of supply is to the extent of 50% of the ACQ/Linkage achieving 45% PLF.
23Coal Availability vis-a vis Govt. Policy This gap in policy and its implementation likely to discourage power developer.There is an urgent need to synchronize coal based thermal capacity addition and capacity addition for the coal production.With the prospect of accelerated nuclear capacity addition programme existing planned thermal coal based capacity addition need to be reviewed.
24The Way ForwardCountry’s Power generation plans are at the cross roads of growth and poised for a quantum leap.Matching progress required in the coal sector through creation of enabling policy environment.
25The Way ForwardIn the deficit scenario of coal, Government would have to create an enabling policy environment to facilitate –Greater domestic/captive production,CIL/SCCL to ensure total coal requirement (including import) for the power sector as per NCDP.Encouragement of setting up new power plant at coastal area with imported coal.
26The Way ForwardPorts to be identified with power project for import/coastal cum riverine transport.There must be some integrated clearance for both coal linkage as well as movement clearance to power utilities.Supply of sized coal to power utilities.Incorporation of rapid loading system at each and every siding/mines of the coal company.
27Measures to Beef up production From Existing Mines :Adaptation of modern technology to increase productivity.To increase the availability of the major HEMM ( Shovel, Dumper, Dragline, Dozer etc.).The rapid depletion of shallow reserves calls for exploitation of deep seated reserves through efficient technology. This can be done by inviting international players with state-of-the-art technologies.
28Measures to Beef up production From Upcoming Mining Project :Time frame clearance of coal mining projects.Up front forest and environment clearanceAllocation of more coal blocks to private players/ end users with strict deadlines and steep penalties for failure.A special purpose vehicle (SPV) may be set up initially to take care of all regulatory clearances, which is then transferred to the Mine developer
