Cement major ACC has resumed limestone mining at Bargarh in Odisha as the mining lease of the company was renewed under the new Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Act.

The company suspended mining in Odisha last October after the Supreme Court ordered the state government to stop companies with deemed licence from mining. The impact of the closure was not material since cement grinding continued with sourcing of clinker from other places, said the company in a statement.
