Treat minerals as family gold: Goa Foundation
3 pm, 26th Sep, Press Club of India, New Delhi
 
Goa Foundation (GF) is the petitioner in the Goa mining scam. In that judgment, the SC ordered a cap on mining and the creation of the Goa Iron Ore Permanent Fund on grounds of intergenerational equity.
 
Recently, after discussing intergenerational equity, the SC asked for a review of the National Mineral Policy. The Ministry of Mines has set up the KR Rao Committee with a mandate to draft the new policy. Goa Foundation has already objected to the composition of the Committee, which has no representation from the ministry of tribal affairs, the 6th schedule areas, the people or future generations. Civil society is also not represented.
 
Goa Foundation will be discussing its recommendations for the new mineral policy with the KR Rao Committee earlier on Sep 26. At the core is the demand to treat minerals as a shared inheritance, our family gold.
 
Do attend the press conference to understand its implications. Tuesday, 26th September, 3pm at the Press Club of India.
