New Delhi: The coal ministry has shortlisted 134 applications out of the 176 preliminary bids received for the coal block on offer in the first batch. Coal Secretary Anil Swarup told in New Delhi on February 2015 that the ministry will go ahead with the auction of mines as per schedule.

The Supreme Court had in September 2014 cancelled allotment of 204 mines since 1993, terming the allotment as ‘arbitrary and illegal.’
