Kolkata: Union coal secretary Anil Swarup said in Kolkata on Thursday that state-owned power companies are expected to stop importing coal from next year.
In the current year, import of coal by such power producers is expected to decline by around 15 million tonnes (mt) from 35-40 mt previously. State-owned miner Coal India Ltd is shoring up production and at the beginning of the current year, it had a coal surplus of 56 mt, according to Swarup.
