Webinar Mining | Centre for Science and Environment

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Independence Day address to the nation had highlighted the under-development of mining areas as an issue of grave concern. Nearly within a month of it, the Pradhan Mantri Khanij Kshetra Kalyan Yojana (PMKKKY) was launched. The scheme has been championed by the Ministry of Mines as a "revolutionary and unprecedented scheme of its kind, which will transform the lives of people living in areas which are affected directly or indirectly by mining".

The PMKKKY gives some positive directions, but also suffers from loopholes.
Thank you for attending the webinar. You can access the video of our presentation and hear Chandra Bhushan, Deputy Director General of CSE speak on the issue at the link below.
