and the supreme court deallocates all blocks…

yesterday, shortly after 2 pm, the supreme court deallocated almost all captive coalblocks — sparing just the umpps and two JV-less blocks of sail and ntpc. with that, i guess, ends my reporting on the captive coal block allocations. see these two links. one, this bouncy little primer written yesterday on what coalgate was all about. also see this: a link aggregating all the stories by my friends (and ex-colleagues) avinash singh, john samuel raja, supriya sharma and me on the captive coalblock allocations.

One response to “and the supreme court deallocates all blocks…”

  1. I have continuously followed your reporting on this issue… overall, a great job! It is now beginning to emerge that Coal India has actually been starved of blocks. The next big issue will be the claims of coal block owners regarding the investments they have made and how these will be compensated for by the government.
