 Shillong: The State Mining Policy, which would regulate the mining activities in the State, has been forwarded to the State Government for its approval.

Informing this here on Monday, Deputy Chief Minister (In-Charge of Mining and Geology) Bindo Mathew Lanong said the State Cabinet would take up the issue shortly.

The proposed Mining Policy points out that there is an urgent need to see that the environment is protected while initiating various mining activities. The upcoming mining policy is expected to be people friendly and it would bring more benefit to the miners of the state as it would cater to all the needs of the miners in the state.

It may be reminded that the final draft of the policy was proposed to be submitted to the State Government in July but due to opposition from coal miners and limestone miners of the State under the umbrella of the Joint Forum on Mining Policy (Coal and Limestone), the submission has been delayed.
