Coal bid­ding

Down to Earth - - LETTERS -

This is with ref­er­ence to "Life after coal­gate" (Novem­ber 1-15, 2014). The Cen­tre's rec­om­men­da­tion of e-auc­tion­ing the can­celled 214 coal blocks by the Supreme Court should be wel­comed. The gov­ern­ment's decision to pass on the en­tire rev­enue to the state where mines are lo­cated should be ap­pre­ci­ated. The rev­enue will help the peo­ple work­ing in the coal mines. Apart from mon­i­tor­ing the bid­ding process, the Cen­tre should also make sure that the states follow the norms and the al­lo­cated rev­enue is spent ap­pro­pri­ately.
