Indian provinces get to a slow start for mineral auctioning

Inexperienced in processes and procedures, only four Indian provinces have taken steps to get auction off non-coal mineral reserves .

The Mines Ministry has completed short-listing 70 mineral blocks, which include iron-ore, bauxite and limestone, and all geological reports of the explored blocks handed over to the provincial governments, including model auction processes, a Ministry official said.
