India | Mining leases in buffer zone around Sariska Tiger Reserve suspended while under review

JAIPUR: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has directed all mining activities in the eco-sensitive zone (ESZ) of the Sariska Tiger Reserve (STR) to be stopped immediately till mining leases are cleared by the standing committee of the National Board of Wildlife (NBWL).

With this no mining activity can be carried out within the 10 km radius of STR. The order was issued on December 20 when the NGT was hearing an appeal challenging environmental clearance granted to 24 mining projects within 10 km radius of the reserve’s boundary.
