中国石化新闻网讯 据能源世界网3月3日新德里报道，印度议会周一获悉，政府已采取了几项措施来确保国内钢铁行业的炼焦煤供应，并正在努力使原材料的进口来源多样化。虽然该国钢铁工业的另一个关键原材料铁矿石的产量足以满足当前的需求，但由于该国高质量焦煤（低灰煤）的供应有限，因此，除了进口焦煤外，别无选择，联合钢铁部长Dharmendra Pradhan在Lok Sabha回答询问时表示，国内生产并不能满足焦煤的全部需求。

Efforts are being made to diversify coking coal import sources: Pradhan
The government has taken several steps to secure coking coal supplies for the domestic steel industry and is making efforts to diversify the raw material's import sources, Parliament was informed on Monday. While output of iron ore, another key raw material for the steel industry, in the country is sufficient to meet the current demand, the entire demand of coking coal is not met from domestic production as the availability of high-quality coking coal (low-ash coal) in the country is limited and, thus, no option is left but to resort to import of coking coal, Union Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said in a reply to a query in the Lok Sabha.
Pradhan also said the government has taken several steps in order to secure coking coal supplies for the Indian steel industry. Efforts are being made to import coking coal from the US, Russia to diversify the coking coal import sources, he said.
"During 2018-19, the total demand of coking coal for the steel industry was 58.37 million tonne (MT). Out of this, 51.83 MT was met through imports, 1.6 MT was provided by Bharat Coking Coal Ltd (BCCL) and Coal India Ltd (CIL) and the remaining was catered by captive collieries of SAIL and Tata Steel," he said.
Two coking coal mines Rohne and Rabodih were allocated to steel central public sector enterprises NMDC and RINL.
