Scientific mining of coal in Meghalaya gets Centre’s nod

The Union coal ministry has paved the way for scientific mining of coal in Meghalaya by approving as many as five mining applications submitted by the state government. The approval granted is only for the first stage, which includes carrying out exploration and other exercises. The miners will also need to obtain prior approval and environmental clearance from the Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC), after which the mining lease would be issued.
