Tribals’ interest to be protected while mining: Govt

Union Minister of Mines, Dinsha Patel has said that the National Mineral Policy, 2008 states that mining activities will be undertaken so that special care is paid to protect the interest of host and indigenous (tribal) population through developing models of stakeholder interest based on international best practice.

The mining sector was liberalised with the enunciation of the National Mineral Policy-1993, which allowed private sector investment in mining. There is no change in this policy approach in the current National Mineral Policy enunciated in 2008.

The National Mineral Policy 2008 is available on website of Ministry of Mines (http://www.mines.gov.in), the Minister said.
