NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India will use domestic coal for its proposed 4,000 megawatt power project in Tamil Nadu, instead of imported it, Coal Minister Piyush Goyal said on Wednesday, as the south Asian nation seeks to cut its overseas purchases.

He said the state power minister has agreed for use of domestic coal for the project.
