Kick-starting the process of coal blocks allocation, the government had last year allocated 17 coal mines - 14 to power and 3 to mining public sector undertakings (PSUs).

Of the 14 blocks alloted to power PSUs, four were alloted to NTPC.

Other power PSUs that were allocated mines included Neyveli Uttar Pradesh Power Ltd, Odisha Thermal Power Corp, Jammu & Kashmir State Power Dev Corp, Chhattisgarh State Power Gen Co Ltd, Andhra Pradesh Generation Co, Maharashtra State Power Generation Co, Rajasthan Vidyut Utpadan Nigam and Punjab State Power Corp Ltd.

Three three blocks were alloted to mining PSUs like Jharkhand State Mineral Development Corp and MP State Mining Corporation Ltd.
