Apex court to hear case on ore mining

In February, the Supreme Court would hear a case filed by an NGO named Goa Foundation alleging large-scale illegalities in iron ore mining in the state.

It is learnt that the state government would file an affidavit in the court, in which it will highlight the socio-economic impact of suspension of mining activities in the state since October last year.

Through this affidavit, the state government would plead that they are capable to differentiate between legal and illegal mining. State should be allowed to differentiate without any intervention, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said.

The affidavit would plead the court to allow sustainable iron ore mining in the larger interest of the people of Goa. The chief minister expressed fears that several banks which had given loan for the purchase of trucks, barges (ships) and mining machinery, are on the verge of collapse.

The affidavit would highlight the social and economic impact on the people in the state if mining continues to halt in future. The economic and social impact would be the main aspect that would be highlighted in the affidavit, Parrikar said.

The apex court, in its order on October 5, 2012, has halted transportation and extraction of ore in the state pending report from the Centrally Empowered Committee (CEC).
