About the Indian Coal Markets Conference

mjunction services limited is happy to announce the 13th Indian Coal Markets Conference and Awards Dinner 2019.
The Indian coal sector is witnessing a renewed surge in demand that has resulted in a rebound in coal imports in 2018-19 despite a high 7 percent growth in domestic production. The outlook for the current year remains mixed as slackness in Coal India's overburden removal puts a question mark over the output growth. In captive coal segment, doubts remain over the success of the government's plan to launch the next round of auctions. Also, the initial optimism over the proposed introduction of commercial mining seems to be fading with time. In such a situation, how will the demand be impacted if the power sector witnesses higher PLF? How will the supply-demand dynamics change if commercial mining is started in earnest? Is India headed for another upswing in coal imports during the next 2-3 years?
These and many other questions would come up for discussions in the 13th Indian Coal Markets Conference.
Some key topics to be discussed in the conference this year -
