As many as 222 mineral blocks are in the pipeline for auction in 2017-18. While all these blocks could be potentially auctioned, the actual number of blocks to go under the hammer would depend on their status of exploration and the readiness of the respective state governments. Karnataka, with 57 blocks, tops the list of states that are readying mineral blocks for auction.
