On Monday, the coal ministry announced that it had received a total of 38 bids from the three rounds of auctions for commercial coal mines. The coal ministry announced in a statement that the online bids submitted as part of the auction process will be opened on Tuesday at 10 AM and in the presence of interested potential bidders.

It stated that offline submissions were due at 1600 hours on June 27, 2022, while online submissions for all coal mines had a deadline of 1200 hours on that day. The fifth tranche of the commercial mines’ auction got a total of 28 offline offers for 15 coal mines, according to the coal ministry’s announcement.

Six bids were received for the nine coal mines that were put up for sale under the second attempt of the third tranche, according to the announcement. Four coal mines were put up for auction during the second try of the fourth round, and four bids were submitted in opposition to three coal mines.
