Vedanta group firm Sesa Goa is hopeful of securing forest clearances in a “matter of days” to resume operations in Karnataka, a top company official said.

The company’s mine in Chitradurga district is among those in the State on which the Supreme Court had last week lifted the ban.

“We are not looking at long time line to secure forest clearance from the Ministry of Environment and Forests. The judgment will help the mining people and economic activity will restart in the region. We are hopeful of securing the (forest) clearance in matter of days considering the iron ore crunch,” Sesa Goa’s Managing Director P.K. Mukherjee said.
