Coal auctioning process in Meghalaya to start within 10 days
Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sangma on Thursday said the actual process for coal auctioning in the state would start within 10 days. “We already had a meeting with the MSTC Limited, and the entire procedures for auctioning have been finalized with MSTC and Coal India Limited,” chief minister Sangma said.
The Supreme Court in its order passed on July 3 last year also directed that the entire extracted coal stocks already identified be handed over to the Coal India Limited for the purpose of disposal/auction as per the rules the CIL and mode and manner formulated by the NGT appointed committee. The NGT committee has approved auctioning of only 2 lakh metric tons on a pilot basis.
