Goa Chief Minister, Dr. Pramod Sawant on Wednesday said that the state government has got assent for Goa Mining Corporation Bill 2021 from Goa governor P.S. Sreedharan Pillai . He said that the government will now frame rules for the implementation of the Act.
On July 30 this year, the state assembly passed the mining bill. In recent past the supreme court of India has quashed the mining review petitions filed by Goan miners pleading extension of leases.
