Top News Qatar’s 2022 World Cup organisers have welcomed a long-awaited FIFA report on the race to host the tournament saying the conclusions represented “a vindication of the integrity” of Doha’s bid The report which also investigated the bidding process for the 2018 World Cup made no suggestion that either Russia or Qatar should lose the right to stage the tournament despite detailing numerous attempts to influence voting officials The 430-page report had been under wraps since being completed by FIFA’s then-ethics investigator Michael Garcia in November 2014 FIFA football’s global governing body chose to publish on Tuesday after the document was leaked to the German newspaper Bild “Although we question the timing of the leak we welcome the publication of the Garcia report” Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy said in a statement “We believe that the extent of our cooperation with this investigation and the conclusions drawn represent a vindication of the integrity of our bid” Russia was awarded the 2018 World Cup and Qatar the 2022 tournament in a single vote in Zurich in December 2010 Qatar will be the first country in the Middle East to host the tournament In the report Garcia wrote that Qatar “may not have met the standards set out in the FIFA code of ethics or the bid rules” but added in mitigation that it only was due to its cooperation that the issues were uncovered Qatar said earlier this month a rift with fellow Gulf Arab states that includes economic sanctions on Doha has not affected its preparations to host the World Cup and alternative sources for construction materials had been secured FIFA has said it is in “regular contact” with Qatar after Saudi Arabia Bahrain the United Arab Emirates and Egypt severed ties with Doha accusing it of supporting Iran and funding Islamist groups Qatar denies the charges In the running alongside Russia to stage the 2018 World Cup were England and joint bids from Spain/Portugal and the Netherlands/Belgium Qatar’s rivals for the 2022 tournament were Australia Japan the United States and South Korea Football Federation Australia whose publicly funded $35 million-bid to host the 2022 World Cup garnered one vote also welcomed the report and said it contained no new “substantive” matters which have not already been investigated or reported “FFA has said repeatedly that the bid process for 2018 and 2022 was deeply flawed and that mistakes were made by the Australian bid team” read a statement “However FFA notes that FIFA continues to reform its governance including relating

fourth term at German champions Bayern Munich with a home game against Freiburg on Saturday knowing that his team must instantly snap back into winning mode The 72-year-old replaced the sacked Carlo Ancelotti last week after a string of bad results left Bayern second in the Bundesliga five points behind Borussia Dortmund “There is no time for familiarisation Freiburg want to snatch points away from us” said Bayern forward Thomas Mueller who is expected to benefit from Heynckes’ return after languishing on the bench under Ancelotti Mueller was part of the 2013 treble-winning team under Heynckes which also included the Champions League title “We parted in 2013 with the best of memories and that is where we will try to pick up now” Mueller said “We know the coaching team It is excited and well tuned This can only help us” Bayern wasted two-goal leads to draw 2-2 in their last two Bundesliga matches and were also beaten 3-0 by Paris St Germain in the Champions League a defeat that prompted the departure of Ancelotti Heynckes has promised to shake the team out of its current daze and have players work for each other more “I already feel a real spirit of optimism and there is a good atmosphere within the team” Heynckes said on Wednesday after two days of coaching the team “I am confident we will have a positive attitude going into our next matches” Bayern have a busy five

conditions laid down ensure transparency and aggressive bidding which insulates the process from criticism Related News The auction of coal blocks is off the ground with a flying start Both the forward auction for the non-regulated sector and the reverse auction for power utilities are witnessing aggressive bidding by companies that meet the end-use criteria of eligibility The government deserves rich compliments The huge uncertainty in the sector arising from the verdict of the apex court cancelling most allocations on grounds of illegitimacy has been reversed convincingly in the shortest possible time The transparency built into the process is beyond question The excitement generated among bidders and the resultant euphoria is commendable Coming to the outcome of the process so far it is worthwhile to deliberate separately on the reverse auction and the forward auction In the reverse auction adopted for blocks reserved for the power sector the winning bidder is the one that bids the highest discount to the price of coal worked out on the basis of the notified price of Coal India Ltd (CIL) The price of coal to be considered for determining the power tariff would be the CIL price less the offered discount In other words the higher the discount offered the lower will be the tariff payable by the consumer The discount offered by the highest bidders in this category so far has been a very significant portion of the CIL price in the range of 50 to 70 per cent Since the power tariff in these cases will be determined on the basis of the discounted coal price of the winning bidder who has already made substantial investment in the power plant there is no option left but to actually mine coal from the block The power tariff will not cover coal sourced in any other mode at a higher price (Illustration by: Pradeep Yadav) The issue therefore will boil down to the adequacy of the margin left at the discounted price to cover investment and mining costs Coal mining going forward will need to be more and more socially and environmentally sustainable It will also need to address the expectations of coal workers The cost of land acquisition can only move northwards Incidentally in the absence of minimum wages prescribed by the government for coal workers private contractors are in most cases known to pay the minimum wages of the state which far from covers the arduous nature of the work A demand for separate wages for contract workers in this segment has been gaining momentum Indeed CIL had earlier in 2012 agreed to a nearly threefold increase in wages of contract workers that is yet to be implemented As and when these are enforced the cost of mining will increase much beyond current levels squeezing the margins further Whether coal mining remains viable with these cost pressures at the deeply discounted coal price is a question that needs careful evaluation Coming to the forward auction in many cases the winning bidder has offered a price to acquire the right to mine coal that is higher than the price currently charged by CIL for the supply of a similar grade of coal itself Adding to this the cost of mining the transfer price of coal to the non-regulated end-product could substantially exceed the cost of coal from CIL supplied to competitors of the winning bidder With international coal prices under pressure and oil prices at new lows the transfer price may even exceed the imported coal price However unlike the winning bidders in the reverse auction for power the winning bidder in this case may opt in favour of not operating the coal block and decide to source coal from the market In the case of the non-regulated sector the beneficiary of the aggressive bidding is the state government The unexpectedly huge inflow to the state exchequer does not require the state government to expend even a small portion of the receipts towards the development of the mining area or the local community As a result the onus is on the winning bidder to incur these expenses in addition to the huge payout to the state government which may eventually increase the possibility of an abandonment of coal mining The state government in that situation loses the cash inflows One approach to reduce the chances of such an eventuality is to reach a consensus with the concerned state government to take care of investment in community assets from the proceeds of the cash inflows It is thus seen that in both the reverse and forward auctions the conditions laid down ensure transparency and aggressive bidding which insulates the process from any possible criticism by institutions like the CAG However whether it is conducive to promoting sustainable mining depends only on the premise that the bidders be fully aware of the implications of their actions Unfortunately self-destructive bidding is not unknown in the Indian context Bidding for ultra mega power projects (UMPPs) has provided examples in the not too distant past with winners throwing up their hands after finding it impossible to deliver power at the offered price Analyses of the root cause in all of these cases indicate an inadequate core competence in coal mining or coal sourcing as the underlying reason In the present case of bidding among end-users the possibility of a similar inadequacy cannot be ruled out One cannot rule out the possibility of things getting sane and rational with more blocks being offered for auction However in case this does not happen the government despite its best intentions may eventually become a spectator in witnessing coal mining in the end-use segment not picking up to the desired level due to a lack of financial sustainability Is there a way to make the process more sensible without compromising transparency Two distinct approaches could be considered The first is to determine the normative cost of mining which includes a reasonable margin for each block and bids that provide less than 80 per cent of such costs be deemed unsustainable and hence rejected The second option is to open commercial mining and carry out bidding among players with proven core competence The tacit assumption that bidders know the implications of what they are doing will certainly be more appropriate in such cases The writer former chairman of Coal India Ltd is executive director Deepak Fertilisers and
