i am uploading this story late. it was published the day i went on leave.

about ten years ago, ntpc was alloted the largest captive coal block of all — pakri barwadih, with 1.6 billion tons of coal. mining is yet to start here. the company blames delays in land acquisition. but the reasons for that go beyond recalcitrant villagers. in the process, a worrying shift in the architecture of coal PPPs is taking shape.

take a look, here.
