Shah Commission report on illegal mining approved by Government
Feb 07, 2014

The government has approved the Justice M B Shah Commission report on illegal mining in Odisha. The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by the Prime Minister. The Commission's report along with the action taken report on it by a committee on secretaries will be tabled in Parliament.

The Commission has reportedly indicted both the Centre and the State Government on illegal mining of iron and manganese ore. It also asked the Odisha Government to recover over 59,203 crore rupees from miners. The Cabinet also approved a proposal to allow subordinate courts handle civil cases involving disputes of a minimum of two crore rupees as against the current limit of 20 lakh rupees. The decision would now make filing of case cheaper and reduce the burden on High Courts and the Supreme Court.
