New Delhi: A Supreme Court panel has ruled that no mining activity will be allowed in Goa until all environmental clearances are obtained by the state government. The order comes following an inquiry report by the Central Empowered Committee (CEC) into the illegal iron-ore mining in the state.
The Supreme Court had earlier this year suspended iron ore export from the mines in the state after a report by the Justice MB Shah Commission estimated a Rs 35 thousand crore loss due to illegal mining in the state in the last 12 years.
The next date for hearing in the case is January 4.
