For over five years now, the central government has been in the process of framing and enacting a new legislation to develop and regulate India’s mines and minerals. However, in a short span of less than two months, the NDA government promulgated an Ordinance, introduced and passed a new version of a Bill in both the houses of Parliament. The Bill provides a legal framework to regulate the mining sector. A host of unaddressed concerns in the Bill question the government’s intent of protecting the interests of the indigenous populations.
