As regards dumps, Policy of Government is reflected in the Draft Mining Policy of Goa, which is yet to be finalized. Such possibilities can not be ruled out and the same has been brought to the notice of the State Government by Indian Bureau of Mines, a sub-ordinate office under Ministry of Mines for proper environmental clearances as pre-requisite for dumps removal / mining.
