• Indian Prime Minister approved a
  decision in July 2005 that the ministry of
  coal should continue to allot blocks for
  captive mining through the screening
  committee procedure until competitive
  bidding was made operational.
• The minutes of a meeting chaired by then
  principal secretary to the Prime Minister,
  revealed that the then coal minister, went
  with the decision because he expected
  delays in implementing competitive
  bidding.
                                               12
• When asked for comments, the PMO
  cited an answer by the PM in
  Parliament: “It was noted that the Coal
  Mines (Nationalisation) Act, 1973 will
  need to be amended before the
  proposed competitive bidding procedure
  becomes operational.
• This is likely to take considerable time
  and the process of allotment of coal
  blocks for captive mining cannot be kept
  in abeyance for so long.”

• Coal India (CIL) has been steadily increasing its
  production every year. From 70 or so million
  tons in the early 1970s, CIL's production rose to
  about 430 million tons around 2009.
• And then, it abruptly plateaued. In the next
  three years, it added just 4-5 million tons.

 Environment ministry distinguishes
between heavily forested areas where coal
mining was not allowed and less forested
areas where mining approvals could come -
CIL alleges that the latter approvals never
came through. Also, the government came
up with a pollution index for various critically
polluted areas.

                                                   15
Also, the government came up with a pollution
index for various critically polluted areas, with
industrial and other activity being banned in such
regions. Nine of these were CIL coal-mining areas
and all of them were growth coalfields. CIL could
not even apply for expansion projects in these. The
CEPI issue [pollution index] pushed its plans back
by one year.
                                                     16
CIL has been slow to adopt technologies for
underground mining - the bulk of India's coal comes
from open-pit mines which will eventually run out.
Now 80% of world production now comes from
underground mining. The bottomline: any solution
to the coal mess has to fix CIL's problems as well
such as not ramping up production from new
blocks because of a lack of rail linkages.

        Govt wakes up to captive miners profiteering
Mulls clause to mandate participation in tariff-based bidding
                        for power
 Sudheer Pal Singh / New Delhi Sep 12, 2012, 00:09 IST

                  The brouhaha over coal block
                  allocations has goaded the
                  government into correcting the policy
                  imperfections that have long
                  prevailed in India's coal mining
                  sector. It is planning a clause to
                  make it mandatory for captive miners
                  to take part in tariff-based bidding for
                  power.



                                                                30
A few miners have been selling power produced through coal
from their captive mines in the open market to make profits.
The coal ministry now plans to add the mandatory clause in
                                   T
captive miners’ allotment letters. “ he power ministry has
asked the coal ministry to put a condition in the block
allotment letters that captive coal block allottees will have to
participate in tariff-based bidding process. It was added there
were eight to 10 companies that held coal blocks, but
continued to sell merchant power, an industry term used for
electricity sold outside long-term power purchase agreements
(PPAs) with power distributors.
                                                                   31
               Why UPA dithered on coal auctions:
           While the coal ministry favoured the auction
        of coal mines, states outrightly opposed the move
          Jyoti Mukul / New Delhi Sep 09, 2012, 00:25 IST


While the coal ministry favoured the auction of coal mines,
states outrightly opposed the move. The PMO, too, dragged
its feet. Jyoti Mukul traces how the proposal moved back
and forth
Coalgate (damage, according to the Comptroller & Auditor
General: Rs 1.86 lakh crore) is different from the spectrum
scam (maximum damage: Rs 1.76 lakh crore) in one crucial
way: this time, the Centre has said that it was keen to
replace opaque allocations with transparent bidding but its
efforts were stymied by coal-bearing states like Orissa,
Chhattisgarh and West Bengal.

                                                            32
It so happens that during Coalgate (2004 to 2009), the first
two states were ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party, sworn
enemy of the Congress, and West Bengal by the Left
(partner in the earlier United Progressive Alliance regime of
2004 to 2009 but now in the opposition benches). BJP’s
reluctance to have a debate on the floor of the house, the
Congress’s spin doctors have said, stems from its role in
blocking the Centre’s proposal to go for open bidding




                                                                33

Anna said it was in the report of the Comptroller and Auditor
General on coal bloc allocations.
"We will be most happy if the allegations levelled against
the Prime Minister are found to be false. But how will it be
proved? For that we need to have an independent
investigating agency to probe it," he told reporters.
Law Minister Salman Khurshid ruled out setting up a
Special Investigation Team of retired judges as demanded
by Team Anna. "We are not going to cowdown," he said.

                                                            37
2012: "The world will not end. It will be transformed...
Everything will change...Change is accelerating now,
and it will continue to accelerate...If the people of the
earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape, without
having destroyed too much of the Earth, we will rise
to a new, higher level. But to get there we must
transform enormously powerful forces that seek to
block the way...Humanity will continue, but in a
different way. Material structures will change. From
this we will have the opportunity to be more human..."

Since everything that exists is an aspect of
consciousness, and the Mayan Calendar describes
the evolution of consciousness in all of its aspects,
no stone is left unturned for the serious student of
the Mayan Calendar.
All of science is affected, all of religion is affected,
all of life is affected.
We are here for a reason. Time is no longer equated
with money, but with spirit. Time is inspiration
                                                           39
     2012: From the Mayan Elders Themselves

1]Although Dec 21, 2012 is the date of the end
of the age in the Mayan calendar it does not
mean anything spectacular is going to happen
on that exact date.
2] The Mayan elders say the calendar foretells
Earth changes and changes in consciousness
AND that they occur within a seven-year period
of time around 2012.
3] When does (did) the seven-year period start?
The Hopis’ prophecy stated the major changes
would start when a ”large blue star” appears.

                                                  40
4] On October 24, 2007 “Comet 17P/Holmes
shocked astronomers on Oct. 24, 2007, with a
spectacular eruption. In less than 24 hours, the
17th magnitude comet brightened by a factor of
nearly a million, becoming a naked-eye object in
the evening sky. By mid-November the
expanding comet was the largest object in the
solar system–bigger even than the Sun.

                                                   41
5] Hopi and Mayan Elders met and agreed Comet
Holmes was the star foretold in their prophecies. The
seven year period has begun.
6] What is the biggest change in this seven years? A
magnetic pole shift followed shortly by a physical
pole shift. A physical pole shift is what destroyed
Atlantis 13,000 years ago. Similarly, this would be a
“big deal” today. Certainly it would qualify as
Yogananda’s “you have no idea what a catastrophe is
coming” event.

The date December 21st, 2012 A.D. (13.0.0.0.0 in the
Long Count), represents an extremely close
conjunction of the Winter Solstice Sun with the
crossing point of the Galactic Equator (Equator of the
Milky Way) and the Ecliptic (path of the Sun), what
that ancient Maya recognized as the Sacred Tree.
This is an event that has been coming to
resonance very slowly over thousands and
thousands of years. It will come to resolution at
exactly 11:11 am GMT.

• In India, the tradition has promoted 2012
    as a "deadline" for human enlightenment
    since at least 1998.
•   Over 15 million people believe that 2012
    marks the end of the Kali Yuga, or
    degenerate age
