Indian coal mining scam - SC reserves order on scrapping of coal block allocationsJanuary 19, 2014


PTI reported that the Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its verdict on scrapping of around 200 coal blocks allocation after holding a marathon arguments spanning over 16 months during which the Centre's role in awarding the natural resourses to private companies came under sharp criticism.

A three-judge bench headed by Justice Mr RM Lodha, which had agreed to look into the alleged irregularities in coal block allocation on September 14tt, 2012, wrapped up the proceedings which witnessed the Centre itself putting in motion the process of deallocating some coal blocks.

The bench heard the arguments of all concerned parties involved in the allocation, including the seven mining states and the association of mining companies.

Private companies contended any order of the apex court should have prospective effect and all the allocations should not be scrapped in one go and it should be decided on a case- to-case basis.

"It is submitted that as far as the system of allocation is concerned, any challenge even if succcessful, could have prospective effect where people have acted in a bona fide manner, assuming the machinery was in accordance with law.

"If there are irregularitiies in the grant, it is submitted that it would depend on the facts of an individual case as to the degree of the irregularities and whether it has resulted in a miscarriage of justice, in which case there could be a wholesale invalidation," senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for associations of Sponge Iron Manufacturers Association, said.
