India's energy transition stands at the crossroads of meeting the nation's rising energy demand and pressure at the global front to reduce emissions. Having now committed to a low carbon development plan and a net zero target year, all eyes are on India to declare the expiry date of coal.

To get a ringside understanding of this complex issue, we invited Dr. Anil Kumar Jain. He has held senior positions at key ministries of petroleum, environment, NITI Aayog, and the erstwhile Planning Commission. He recently retired as the secretary, ministry of coal where he initiated a division and dialogue on just transition in the country's coal sector.

Jain has also authored two books on India's natural gas sector and holds a Ph.D. on the same. He has served as a bureaucrat for 3 decades.
