Back in 1999, we started Coal Trading business with a simple dream of bridging the coal demand - supply gap in Indian thermal power plants. We started off by educating TPS about the benefits of imported coal by supplying the first rake to Suratgarh TPS. Today, Adani Group is one of the largest coal supplier in the world, the largest supplier in India, largest revenue earner for Indian Railways and the largest importer from Indonesia.
