The recent years have seen not only a tightening of the global minerals market in terms of high demand and high prices, several countries have also imposed restrictions on exports of such resources. Most experts believe that the current low prices of resources are going to be short-lived. Given this, it is important that enough investment takes place in the Indian mining sector both for exploration as well actual mining to ensure resource security and to keep its growth momentum accelerating.
For quite sometime, the Indian mining sector has faced serious policy uncertainty that affected investment in the sector. It is expected that the new MMDR Amendment Act, 2015 will result into simplification of procedures and avoidance of delay in the mining sector in the country. It will provide an enabling environment for the investors and at the same time bring a balance by providing appropriate measures to address social and environmental concerns, also to ensure that the investors get social license to operate. While this new Act has been widely held for its several positive features, some experts have expressed doubt if It will also promote maximum exploration for all potential mineral resources, enhancing resource security of the country.
In order to discuss the above and the related issues, ASSOCHAM is organizing ‘India Mining Summit’ to be held on 22nd September 2015 in Hotel The Lalit, New Delhi. It is a part of an ongoing effort by ASSOCHAM to catalyze the development of mines and metallurgy
