The Supreme Court issued notice to Indian government on Jharkhand Government’s pleas challenging decision to auction coal mines for commercial mining. A bench of Chief Justice S A Bobde and Justices R Subhash Reddy and AS Bopanna gave the Centre four weeks to reply on the writ petition and an original suit filed by the Jharkhand government questioning the decision to auction coal blocks for commercial mining.

The State Government has alleged that the announcement was made by the Centre unilaterally without its consultation. During the hearing, the bench told senior advocates Fali S Nariman and Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for Jharkhand Government, that it is inclined to issue notice in this matter and hear it on injunction, listing it as early as possible.
