SC dismisses review pleas on mining, slams Goa govt, Vedanta

In a major setback to the state government, which is trying to restart mining activities in Goa, the Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the review petition filed by the state government seeking the operation of 88 mining leases cancelled in 2018 on the ground of delay in filing the petition for more than 20 months, and said that the plea has no merits.
