Allocation of Coal Blocks

New Delhi: September 5,2012

A Committee recommended for allocation of 15 coal blocks in its meetings held on 20th to 23rd June, 2007, 30th July, 2007 and 13th September, 2007 and for 23 coal blocks in its meetings held on 7th-8th December, 2007, 7th-8th February, 2008 and 3rd July, 2008. In pursuance of the orders of Delhi High Court in W.P.(C) No.6449/2008, the Screening Committee met on 29.06.2011 and 04.10.2011. It may be stated that no blocks were advertised for allocation after the Bill to amend the Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Act, 1957 was introduced in Parliament in 2008. The allocation of coal blocks to private companies made after 2008 is only on account of culmination of the process which was initiated prior to introduction of the Bill.

This was informed by Shri Pratik Prakashbapu Patil, Minister of State in the Ministry of Coal while replying a written question in Lok Sabha today.
