Thermal coal imports soar 23% to 24.08 mt at 12 major ports

Import of thermal coal jumped 23 per cent to 24.08 million tonnes at 12 major ports in the first quarter of the fiscal, even as the government continued to push domestic production of the fuel.

These 12 major ports-- Kandla, Mumbai, JNPT, Marmugao, New Mangalore, Cochin, Chennai, Ennore, VO Chidambarnar, isakhapatnam, Paradip and Kolkata (including Haldia), had handled 19.62 mt and 8.10 mt of thermal and coking coal, respectively, in the first quarter of the previous fiscal, which is approximately 61 per cent of the country´s total cargo traffic.
