IANS recently reported that Indian government is unlikely to consider the Odisha government's demand for revision of coal royalty. Union Coal and Mines Minister Mr Prahlad Joshi said "The Chief Minister has given a representation to me on coal royalty revision. I have briefed the Chief Minister that it is linked to power tariff. It's a larger policy decision since whatever decision is taken it will be applicable to the entire country.”

The Union Minister met Chief Minister Mr Naveen Patnaik last week. During the meeting, the Chief Minister reiterated the demand of the state government that the rates of royalty should be increased and the state should get a share from the cess collected on coal by the Central government.
