Vedanta's little known victims who are suffering from Asthama in Avalpalpal, Goa "About 50 Advalpal villagers - mostly women - today morning marched to the Sesa Goa mine forcing the mine to close down its operation. The concerned Sesa Goa mine T.C. no. 76/52 was is threatening village water sources. Villagers united to drive away Sesa Goa from their village. In fact the villagers are up in arms against the mining activities in the village and movement against the same is going on since 2005. Sesa Goa - owned by British company Vedanta- Salgaocars (T.C. no. 41/55) and Lithoferro (T.C. No. 89/52) are other two companies that are proving to be pests to the Advalpal villagers. Around 1,500 strong people of this village are at the receiving end of the mining menace. The companies and the State authorities so far have been able to 'manage' the village protest by use of Carrot and stick policy - Companies have dished out cash to those willing to accept while Police has been used to silence the protests so far. Dy Sp Shamba Sawant who has been recently transferred from Bicholim was the worse of the lot in threatening the Advalpal villagers. However it is not going to be too long that the situation will go out of control of the mining companies as well as the State authorities in case it refuses to heed to the voices of the People. Saleli and Colamb have already created history in Goa. Advalpal may very well be next to follow. This is particularly so because Police have registered criminal cases against the villagers on trespass charges. Sesa Goa has been instrumental in getting cases filed against 20 villagers of Advalpal. It is not just the common people that are criminally targeted by Sesa Goa but also village Sarpanch Harischandra Sawal has been targeted - politically. The Sesa Goa was served notice on illegal weigh bridge by the village panchayat; in response company got involved in dislodging village Sarpanch. So here is the case mining companies are not only involved in kingmaker roles for the Goa State Assembly members and Chief Ministers but also involved in dislodging of village Panchayat Sarpanch. The audacity of British company to file cases against the local villages is so clearly like the case of British East India Company that ultimately captured whole of India. After 61 years of Independence we have another British Company doing the same for the Advalpal villagers. Through this action it is nurturing new breed of freedom fighters against Imperialism. Considering the behaviour of the Sesa Goa it is not difficult to imagine the kind of shape Goa is going to take in future to come about.

BACKGROUND: In September 2012, Goa went the Karnataka way. First, the Goa government, and subsequently, the Supreme Court (SC) ordered a ban on iron ore mining operations across the state due to environment and encroachment concerns, bringing to halt the state's annual production of over 40mn tons of iron ore. With mining contributing to 30% of the state's revenues, this ban has hit the state hard. This is the VERY FIRST hard-hitting ground report for which I traveled to the dusty mines and government offices across Goa, to bring to light the implications of the issue on the mining industry. STORY: The Central Empowered Committee has recently submitted its report on illegal mining in Goa to the SC and it doesn't contain much good news for the industry. In fact, with the resumption of operation nowhere in sight, the state's mining industry is reaching breaking point. (Insert: Shot of Sesa Goa's mine) Three months ago this mine by Sesa Goa was one of Goa's busiest mines. Every year 4.5 million (mn) tons of iron ore was mined here, and this placed was abuzz with 1500 employees who worked here every day. But now, with the ban on iron ore mining imposed in Goa since September this year, there's only a deafening silence. Sesa Goa is not alone. Mining has stopped in all 90 working mines across Goa following the state's and the Supreme Court's orders, consequently bringing to halt the state's annual production of 40mn tons. Further, the SC-appointed Central Empowered Committee's (CEC) recent recommendation that mining should not resume in 42 of the state's mines because of environment and encroachment concerns is only making matters worse for the ailing industry. So is the CEC's insistence that the Reclamation and Rehabilitation Plan be implemented by companies before resuming mining. Ambar Timblo, MD, Fomento Mines which is one of the large mining companies in Goa says, "From end of May-June of every year till September mining is shut down in Goa because of the monsoon. So the suspension came at a very difficult time because it was a restarting of the season." The situation is grim especially for Sesa Goa, which mines around 14mn tons annually, a third of Goa's total production. Its production in the first half of this fiscal has dropped by 32% from 5.5mn tons last fiscal to 3.7mn tons this fiscal, prompting PK Mukherjee, MD, Sesa Goa to share, "If it is partly shut, partly open then there is question of quantification. There's nothing to be quantified. Everything is shut. Our mining revenue is zero." The ban has also set off a Rs 500cr shortfall in the state's revenues this fiscal, cutting the state off revenues of Rs 1250cr and the central government off taxes of Rs 6500cr. But the Goa government seems more concerned about the unemployment arising out of this ban and is working on an action plan to scrutinize all mining leases. Manohar Parikkar, Chief Minister, Goa is seeking time. He says, "It is the constitutional right of the elected government to govern. So please allow me to govern. Allow me to do the things to clean up the matter because I have been voted for that. I'm accountable to the people." Principal Secretary of the Government of Goa, RK Verma is aware of the challenges that loom ahead, "A large number of families are dependent on mining. Now state government cannot suddenly find jobs for them in one day." Miners at their end are hoping for some relief when the Supreme Court hears their case next month. CEC has recommended the implementation of the Reclamation & Rehabilitation plan before allowing miners to start mining operations in Goa. But given that this process would take over a year to complete, miners intend to appeal to the SC to allow mining to resume, while simultaneously bringing in measures to keep mining irregularities at bay.

Truth vs Hype: Truth vs Hype exclusive this week from Goa, which blows the lid of illegal mining in the state. TVH has accessed details of the Shah Commission report on mining violations in Goa. The Commission, set up by the Centre to prove illegal mining across India, says that more than 50% of Goa's mines are guilty of violations, that there is corruption from 'top to bottom' and that all iron ore exports must be banned. Will this be curtains for Goa's Chief Minister Digambar Kamat, who is also the mining minister? Will the Congress have no choice but to make changes in the state's leadership? And what does it mean for one of India's oldest mining industries, which generates crores in revenues and employs hundreds of Goans?

Union ministry of mines has already begun with the process of auctioning of mining blocks in 11 mineral rich states across India. Recently, Goa has also been asked to furnish details of the mining blocks expected to be auctioned in 2018-19. But sources from Mines Department are of the opinion that it is impossible. They say that the issue of auctioning Goa's mining blocks came up only after the Supreme Court order on March 15. Sources have also informed that Goa has not identified any mining blocks for auctioning. Process of identifying mining blocks started in the year 2017 when mining leases in Goa was renewed till the year 2027. On 7th February this year, Supreme Court cancelled all the existing iron ore mining leases in Goa. Department has also conveyed to Mines Ministry that it is not possible for Goa to identify mining blocks for auctioning in the year 2018-19.
