Coal India, the world’s biggest coal miner, aims to import 50 million tonnes of thermal coal a year from Australia, Indonesia and Mozambique from 2016-17 to cover a forecast increase in demand for power, chairman Partha Bhattacharya said.

India imports Australian coking coal for its steel mills, but it takes only a fraction of Australia’s 130 million tonnes a year of thermal coal exports.
