Now govt reviews coal blocks periodically

The Union Government periodically reviews and monitors the progress of development of coal blocks as well as associated end use plants through the mechanism of ‘Review Committee’ earlier and ‘Inter-ministerial Group (IMG)’ now, said the Union Minister of State for Coal Pratik PrakashBapu Patil on August 26 in the Rajya Sabha.

The review is an ongoing process. Based on the recommendations of the then Review Committee and IMG, the government has so far de-allocated 47 coal blocks.

Out of 47 de-allocated coal blocks, 2 coal blocks were again allocated to eligible companies in 1999 and 2005 respectively.

In addition, de-allocation order in respect of 3 coal blocks allocated to National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) and 2 coal blocks allocated to Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) and Jharkhand State Electricity Board (JSEB) respectively were subsequently withdrawn, the Minister said.
