The Ministry of Mines has recently launched web portal for Star Rating of major mineral mines. The scheme of star Rating will be a vital step for ensuring compliance of environmental protection and social responsibility by the mining sector and has given a deadline for Star Rating of all mines by December 31, 2016. The main purpose of this system is to bring all mines to a minimum standard of Star Rating in the shortest possible time frame to adopt sustainable practices. The positive impact of getting higher Star Rating will drive miners to quickly adopt sustainable mining practices. A web enabled online system for evaluation of measures has been developed with the help of National Institute of Smart Governance (NISG), Hyderabad.
