The Supreme Court on Thursday issued notices to seven states asking them to explain their role in coal block allocations after the Centre said that its role was limited to identifying the blocks and rest was done by states.

Appearing before a special bench headed by justice RM Lodha, attorney general GE Vahanvati said the Centre’s role was limited to identifying the blocks and that the rest was done by the states.

The bench directed the seven states — Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal — to file their response on four questions framed by it by October 29.
