The Minister of Steel, Shri Beni Prasad Verma has said that Bolani Iron Ore Mine of Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) and Bisra Stone Lime Company Ltd. (BSLC) under Bird Group of Companies are operational. In a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today he said, however, Thakurani Mines of Orissa Minerals Development Company Ltd. (OMDC) is not operational for want of environment and forest clearance. The regular workers on the rolls of OMDC are retained and paid wages. Necessary action has already been initiated for obtaining forest and environment clearance in respect of Thakurani Mines of OMDC.
