May be your coriander seeds are old. A very simple test to check whether your seeds are alive or not, is to place them in a bowl of water. If the seeds continue to float on the top after 5-6 minutes, chances are the seeds are no longer alive.
Anyway, don't place the seeds too deep in the soil. Make sure the soil has good drainage. More importantly, the khaad (manure) should be old. Fresh khaad has tons of bacteria and unwanted stuff and it can easily damage any young seedling.
