Govt asks States to curb thermal coal imports
Asking states to stop thermal coal imports, the government in Rajya Sabha said that a lobby was active in some states that was behind dry- fuel imports despite sufficient domestic stock. Replying to a query in the Upper House during Question Hour, Coal minister Pralhad Joshi said India houses the fourth largest resources in the world yet thermal coals were being imported and should be stopped. Coal is among the top five commodities imported by India, the world's largest consumer, importer and producer of the fuel.
