India’s Coal Ministry has accepted the Chhattisgarh government's suggestion to replace five of the nine mines put under commercial coal auction in the state. These blocks are Morga 2, Morga South, Madanpur North, Shyang and Fatehpur East. After the delisting of these five blocks, the Hasdeo catchment area and Mand river catchment area will be saved from the proposed excavation. In addition, three new mines will be added on the suggestion of the Chhattisgarh government, taking the total number of mines for commercial mining to seven. The overall reserve of the coal of all auctioned mines shall remain almost the same.

The Chhattisgarh government had raised objections over the auction of coal mines in the proposed Lemru Elephant Reserve limits.
