Days after the Supreme Court cancelled allocation of 214 coal blocks, the government on Monday moved to bring an Ordinance that will enable it to acquire the land of these mines along with plants for auction later.

After acquiring the land of these coal blocks, the government would auction these. The apex court had last month quashed allocation of 214 out of 218 coal blocks alloted to various companies since 1993 terming the method as "fatally flawed".
