PR Newswire | 24 Mar, 2015
Captive Coal Block Assesment Toolkit

MUMBAI: The Supreme Court has directed the Government of India to scrap all captive coal block allocations made since 1993. In observance of the same the Government of India (GOI) has come out an ordinance clearly outlining its position on competitive bidding of coal blocks and has marked coal blocks to be auctioned under different schedules (Schedule I to Schedule III). The Government plans to put up 91 coal blocks under the first round of bidding which is likely to start before the end of 2014 or early 2015.

A total of 18,446 Million Tonnes (MT) of reserves, with an annual production capacity of 367 MT, is up for grabs. Through this auction, GOI intends to increase India's coal output to more than 1 Billion Tonnes per annum by 2019. Ministry of Coal is likely to notify the bidding process by the last week of December and the whole process is expected to be completed by March 2015.
