Mining consequences severe, warns report

Bangalore, DHNS: The 356-page State of Indias Environment Report - Rich Lands, Poor People - Is Sustainable Mining Possible? was released in Bangalore on Monday... Mining in India (including in the iron ore-rich Bellary district) contrary to the government's claims, has done little for the development of mineral-bearing regions. It has only triggered severe environmental and social consequences, says the latest report of the Centre for Science and Environment, New Delhi.
