Sesa Goa confident of early nod for mining

Following the lifting of ban on mining in some areas in Karnataka by the Supreme Court, Sesa Goa hopes to secure forest clearance for its mine in Chitradurga district in some days.

PK Mukherjee, Managing Director of the Vedanta group firm expressed hope that the company would secure the (forest) clearance in matter of days considering the iron ore shortage.

Recently, the apex court lifted the ban on production in some mines including Sesa Goa's Chitradurga mine. The judgment will help the mining people and economic activity will restart in the region, Mukherjee said.
