APEX COURT LIFTS MINING BAN ON 18 FIRMS IN KARNATAKA

The Supreme Court has directed resumption of operations by 18 mining companies in Karnataka
on the basis of the recommendations of the Central Empowered Committee (CEC). Last year, the court had banned all mining operations holding that right to life under Article  21 of the Constitution would include a pollution-free environment. It had also ordered a CBI probe into alleged illegal mining activities.
