The Supreme Courts decision to cancel coal blocks is likely to cause a fall in supply of coal, particularly for production of electricity. A cut in domestic supply of coal is bound to cause a rise in imports. This will increase our import payment of foreign exchange which will further increase our CAD, other things remaining unchanged.
