INDIA TO DOUBLE COAL PRODUCTION

India Won't Bow To Western Pressure On CO2 Emissions, Modi Says
------------------------------------------------------------
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government aims to double Indian coal production to 1.5 billion tons by 2020. The Modi government, which came to power in May last year, is desperate to increase coal production to facilitate economic growth. The International Energy Exchange projects annual coal consumption in India to grow by 177 million tons, or an average 5% a year, through 2019. --Rosemary Marandi and Kiran Sharma, Nikkei Asian Review, 3 April 2015 (http://asia.nikkei.com/Politics-Economy/Policy-Politics/Modi-looks-to-double-coal-production-by-2020)
