Shah ‘Mining Report’ to be presented in Parliament

The Justice MB Shah panel ‘Mining Report’ on the illegal mining in Goa and other states is to be presented in the current Parliament session.

MB Shah report is the most highly anticipated report on the illegal mining in the country. Extracts of the report which were leaked out to a national media has generated considerable heart-burns for the mining companies and politicians allegedly involved in illegal mining.

Prior to Goa Elections 2012, the leader of the Opposition Manohar Parrikar and now Chief Minister, leveled allegations on the previous Congress government of being facilitators to rampant illegal mining in the state, details of which were also mentioned in the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report, which was not tabled in the Assembly. However, now the stance of the new government is that illegal mining does not exist in Goa but irregular mining.
