Reacting to the auction of coal mines and telecom spectrum which have generated more than 3 lakh crores, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday during the Rajya Sabha session said, "Vinod Rai said that total loss is Rs 1,86,000 from 200 mines. 32 mines alone have fetched Rs 2 lakh crores. When 200 are auctioned, what is the amount they get. First time the history has given us a chance that this 2 lakh, 2.5 lakh, 3 lakh crore rupees that we will get through this, will go in those tribal areas."
