Joint team inspects iron ore mines

A joint team of state officials conduced field verification of mining leases of Tata Steel, Odisha Mining Corporation (OMC), Serajuddin & Company and Kalinga Mining Corporation (KMC) in the iron ore rich Joda sector to oversee any possible encroachment of lease boundaries.

The team inspected Tata Steel’s Khandabandh mines and Guruda mines of Serajuddin & Company.

As per the instructions of the Shah commission, the state government had constituted five teams- one each for three mining circles in Keonjhar district and two mining circles in Sundergarh district. Each of the teams consisted of two members each from the departments of revenue, forest and steel & mines. These committees were headed by a scientist from Odisha Space Application Centre (ORSAC).

These five teams were supervised by two district level committees headed by the collectors of Sundergarh and Keonjhar districts. Moreover, a state level committee was formed under D Biswal, additional secretary (forest & environment).

The committee’s responsibility was to ascertain if a mine owner undertook mining beyond lease area.
