India to cease coal imports by 2025: Pralhad Joshi

The Union Minister for Coal, Mines, and Parliamentary Affairs, Pralhad Joshi, announced that starting from 2025, India would cease the importation of coal from foreign countries. He stated that the annual domestic coal production had now reached 1000 million metric tonnes, compared to the previous total of 562 million metric tonne per year.

During the inauguration of an event organized by the local unit of the BJP, here to commemorate the nine years of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre, Joshi mentioned that the Modi Government's policy of achieving self-sufficiency had resulted in the production of 1000 million metric tonne of coal per year. Consequently, the importation of coal from other countries would be completely halted by 2025, as stated by him.

Furthermore, due to the continuous supply of coal to thermal plants, uninterrupted electricity production has been achieved in the country.

According to Joshi, this achievement could be one of the reasons why the Congress government in Karnataka promised to provide 200 units of free electricity to consumers in the state.

Joshi also highlighted the successful implementation of various developmental policies, such as Make in India and Aatma Nirbhar Bharat, along with other schemes undertaken by the Modi Government over the past nine years. He claimed that these initiatives had propelled the nation forward in becoming the world's third-largest economy by the end of 2028-2029.

The Union Minister further stated that the Modi government had taken revolutionary measures to generate more employment opportunities. These measures involved training millions of youths across the country in skill development across different fields to meet the job requirements in industrial and various other sectors, thereby positioning India as one of the world's most significant industrial production hubs.
