A ‘Star Rating’ system has been instituted by the Ministry of Mines through Indian Bureau of Mines (IBM), in which star rating will be awarded to the mining leases for their efforts and initiatives taken for implementation of the Sustainable Development Framework (SDF).
Rating of one to five stars would be given to the mines by IBM.
Under this system, a provisional ‘Star Rating’ would be awarded on self-certification basis of the evaluation template, filed by the mining lessee.
A web-portal has been developed for online filing of the evaluation template for Star Rating of Mines.
IBM felicitated 19 mines who were given rating of 4/5 stars, during the National Conclave for Mines and Minerals held at Raipur on 4th July, 2016.
Those states are: Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Karnataka, Chhattisgarh, and Orissa.
