Report summary

Aggressive bidding in the first round of coal licence auction shows a serious lack of confidence on Coal India s ability to increase production in the near term. Power and non power companies have agreed to pay up to US$58/t reserve capacity to ensure stable coal supplies and improve utilization levels of end use plants. We expect domestic coal costs to increase in the future supporting growth in imports.
