Donimalai Mine Case: NMDC Says No Valid Reasons For Karnataka To Keep On Hold Extension Of Lease
The Chhattisgarh government has extended leases of NMDC's four mines in the state to avoid interruptions in iron ore supply to the steel sector.
The state-owned firm had earlier said that said production from its Donimalai mine will resume soon, as discussions at the higher level were underway for extension of the mining lease.
The public sector mining major, which has been in the business of mining iron ore for over six decades, operates three iron-ore complexes in the country.
On Monday, NMDC shares rose 1.82 percent to Rs 123.25 apiece on the NSE while the benchmark Sensex gained 0.59 percent to end the day at a record high of 12,329.55 points.
