Given what is written in the article that would appear to be the case.

A tad ironic in some respects - when chasing steam in India in 1978/79 numerous train were cancelled due to a lack of coal brought on by wagon shortages, administrative incompetence, and industrial unrest in the mines.

Coal will remain the dominant source of India's power until at least 2040 - The Hindu:

India has brought ‘pragmatism’ to the debate around the coal, says Michelle Manook.

Coal is not going away and will remain the most significant energy contributor in the energy sector even by 2040, Michelle Manook, CEO, World Coal Association (WCA), said on Thursday.


[She] added that India had brought ‘pragmatism’ to the debate around the coal. “WCA applauds India’s position towards the issue of phasing down of unabated coal as against phasing out coal. Coal is still the world’s largest source of energy. Recent and current events reconfirm that coal is still needed and not on a decline. Coal is not disappearing; it is simply transitioning to a more sustainable model,” Ms. Manook added.
