India has released a report identifying 30 critical minerals essential for its economic development and national security. The list includes minerals such as lithium, cobalt, rare earth elements, and graphite, which are crucial for modern technologies. The list, however, excludes helium, which is surprising as the country imports at an average 10mmcf/m (AKAP estimates). India is heavily dependent on imports for most of these minerals and aims to address vulnerabilities in its supply chain and promote self-reliance. The move signals India's focus on exploring its mineral potential and safeguarding its supply chains from disruptions.
