Disagreed with the Mines Ministry’s MB Shah Commission in respect of illegal mining of iron and manganese,  the committee comprised of former Supreme Court judges Justice Anil R Dave and Justice G S Singhvi cleared some of the biggest iron ore miners in Odisha – including Aditya Birla’s Essel Mining, Sarda Mines, five mines of the Chaibasa-based Rungta Group and KJS Ahluwalia of charges of illegal operation.

The Apex Court appointed committee was asked to investigate ‘de nouveau’ about fifteen lessees accused of either having transferred control or holding mining rights in excess of permissible limits.
