The apex court said that mining activity will only be allowed till March 16.
The Apex Court has asked the Central government to start a fresh process of an auction for mining companies in Goa.
Earlier in October 2012, the apex court suspended all iron ore mining and transportation in the state, following a report submitted by Justice M.B. Shah Commission, which found that millions of tonnes of iron ore were illegally mined by a dozen mining companies. (ANI)
