CSE on Goa’s District Mineral Foundation

The Center for Science and Environment has issued a scathing critique of the DMF rules issued by the Goa Government.

“The draft Rules were kept in the public domain for exactly four days before being finalized.”

“A review by CSE shows that the Rules remain problematic in key aspects that are critical for effective functioning of DMF. “The Rules will not only fall short of realizing the objectives with which DMF has been instituted, but can also be counterproductive,” said CSE Deputy Director General, Chandra Bhushan. “Several provisions remain in contravention of the schemes and guidelines put forth by the Central Government,” he added.”
