MoEF suspends 93 Mines Environmental Clearances

Following the demands of the NGOs, Union Minister of Environment and Forests (MoEF), Jayanthi Natarajan has suspended all the 93 mines’ environmental clearances.

This decision has been made on account of the recent report by Justice MB Shah that exposed a Rs 34,935 crore ‘illegal mining’ scam in Goa.

Earlier in the day, Ramesh Gauns, told GoaChronicle.com that the NGOs have presented a memorandum to the MoEF minister and she has assured them that she would consider the contents of the memorandum and accordingly act on it. We have strictly demanded the suspension of all environmental clearances in the state.
