Gas demand in India gets more uncertain-II: Power demand will never revive
Nov 23: It does not look like there will be a revival of demand for gas in the power sector

8Moving there however would require a nearly fivefold increase in the coal tax (now $6/t) and a potential 30% increase in associated electricity tariffs
