Coal imports rise 2 per cent
Coal imports have increased marginally by 2 per cent to 18.6 mn tonne in August 2015 compared to the same month of the previous year.
The marginal rise is because of increased availability of domestic coal as well as less demand during monsoon. However, coal imports declined 11 per cent to 19.30 mt in July 2015 compared to the same month of previous year.
