Narendra Modi government to bring ordinance on cancelled coal blocks 20.10.2014 DNA: Opinion
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. The Ordinance has been finalised and will be notified after approval of the Union Cabinet, a source said. The measure has been designed to deal with the implications of the Supreme Court's order in the coal case. 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". It had allowed the Centre to take over operation of 42 such blocks which are functional. The Coal Ministry has drafted the Ordinance after extensive consultations with Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi. The issues that need to be resolved by the government in the coal mine case include forfeiting of bank guarantees and title deeds of the land mines ...
