This Week’s Policy Focus 🔎
India’s Coal Crisis: How Were Government Policies Responsible?
India is the world’s fourth-largest energy consumer with its expanding markets and its huge population accounting for its increased energy consumption. Thus, a consistent rate of energy self-sufficiency is crucial for the sustained economic growth and development of a developing country such as India. However, India is yet to achieve such a condition due to its energy deficiency.
