The Wire reported that India’s Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change has sanctioned a 30 year environment clearance extension to the Coal India Limited Dipka coal mine in Chhattisgarh. The extension was recommended by the environment ministry’s Expert Appraisal Committee in its January 24 meeting. Ministry said “The EAC, after detailed deliberations duly considering observations of the Ministry’s Regional Office in their letter dated 27th November, 2019, recommended for continuance of the environmental clearance dated 20th March, 2019 for a period of 30 years or life of the mine, whichever is earlier, subject to the terms and conditions.”

Last March, Dipka, which has a capacity of 25 million tonnes per annum and is spread over 1,999 hectares, was given a one-year environmental clearance which was to expire on March 20 this year. One of Coal India’s largest opencast mines had been in the news when the Lilanagar river inundated it during the monsoons in September.
