Greed, justice and deception

India coal mining licences 'illegal'

India coal mining licences 'illegal' | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it

"India's Supreme Court has ruled that all coal mining licences awarded between 1993 and 2010 are illegal.

Successive governments gave rights to mine coal to state and private companies in a manner which was "not fair and transparent" and without competitive bidding, the court said.

The court will now examine whether 218 such licences should be cancelled.

India's federal auditors say the country lost $210bn (£134bn) because coalfield rights were sold off cheaply."

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

According to data complied by Equal Rights Advocates, a women’s law center in the U.S., 90 to 95% of sexually harassed women suffer from some debilitating stress reaction, including anxiety, depression, headaches, sleep disorders, weight loss or gain, nausea, lowered self-esteem and sexual dysfunction.  In addition, victims of sexual harassment lose $4.4 million dollars in wages and 973,000 hours in unpaid leave each year in the United States
