Government compromises on Pre-Legislative Consultation Policy (2014) and RTI Act to push forward mining reforms, allege civil society activists
--Press release by Mineral Inheritors Rights Association (MIRA) dated 27th August, 2020
The Ministry of Mines has put up a notice on 24th August, 2020 seeking public comments on substantial matters of reform of mineral laws, rules and regulations within a period of 10 days, i.e. 3rd September, 2020. The state governments have not yet been consulted and a 10-day period for the states to respond undermines the federal spirit of the country.
