The Supreme Court will not only decide the issue of mining, but also if Portuguese law will still follow and mining lease holders will get the mining concessions for lifetime.

It’s Portuguese law or Indian law.

Once this issue is decided, Power Minister Nilesh Cabral feels the centre and state could together restart mining as fast as possible.

After an attempt to amend MMDR Act failed, now Modi and Parrikar governments want Supreme Court to decide on a case of Portuguese mining concessions pending since 1989.

What is the case exactly? Nilesh Cabral spoke to Goa365, giving a short background on mining concession granted during the Portuguese rule.

The case: whether the mining concessions granted by the Portuguese are forever or they have to follow Indian law and be auctioned according to the latest MMDR amendents.
