Mining restart in state under an even bigger cloud

16 Sep 2019 05:47 PM

The restart of mining operation in Goa might suffer a major setback as Central government has decided to reject a proposal to extend non-captive mining leases and most mining leases in Goa are non-captive. Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said that the report has just arrived and the government needed time to study it.

The Modi government has decided not to renew non-captive mines of companies that are expiring after completing their 50 year period in March, 2020.  Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said that he was not in a position to make any comment on the issue but would meet his ministers to decide further course of action.
