New Delhi ,
In India, energy transition away from coal is not happening during the  foreseeable future. Although there will be push for renewable/non-fossil based energy, but share of coal in the energy basket is going to remain significant in years ahead. Coal demand in the country is yet to peak. The draft Economic Survey 2021-22 projects coal demand in the range of 1.3-1.5 billion tonnes by 2030, an increase of 63 per cent from the current demand. Thus, as of now there is no scenario of energy transition away from coal affecting any stakeholders involved in coal mining.

This information was given by the Union Minister of Coal, Mines and Parliamentary Affairs Shri Pralhad Joshi.
