VV Minerals accused in the illegal sand mining is proven innocent. Mr. S. Vaikundarajan, the owner of VV Minerals, India, was alleged in a beach mineral mining scam in August last year. However, after a detailed investigation by the Indian Bureau of Mines which is a part of the Ministry of Mines it was found that VV Minerals the largest mining manufacturer and exporter of garnet and ilmenite were innocent. The company’s top management includes Mr. Jegatheesan, Mr. J Muthurajan, and Mr. V. Subramanian.
To boost India’s GDP and make inclusive growth a reality, mining needs to grow in a big way and hurdles cleared in the mineral supply of industry. Economic growth, poverty alleviation and employment generation cannot become a ground reality unless supported simultaneously by mining. Indeed, mining and its downstream activities together possess the potential to employ millions of people.
