The position in respect of coal, oil and radioactive mineral resources of India is reviewed and a comparative study of the industrial economy based on coal, petroleum and atomic energy has been undertaken. With the rapid stride in the industrial development of the country, the need of a realistic assessment of coal resources has been emphasized and a tentative categorization of reserves (quality-wise and depth-wise) for the important coalfields has been attempted. Based on coal survey data, a provisional classification in terms of coking, caking-blendable and non-coking coals has also been dealt with. The distribution of gross heat units (in B.t.u.) stored in the various coal-bearing tracts shows that coal alone will be sufficient for supply of fuel and power to the major industries for a number of decades.
