parsing the coal allocation numbers

parsing the list of allocated coal blocks throws up some interesting patterns. for instance, some companies got coal blocks that would last them less than five years. others got enough coal to last them over 200 years. similarly, the top ten business groups garnered as much as 20% of all the reserves alloted, the top twenty, 27%. concentration of ownership.

that and more, here. and you must see this story in conjunction with an earlier one on the screening committee.
