​MINING LEASES AT SONSHI NOT RENEWED 

PANAJI: Goa state pollution control board(GSPCB) has not renewed the mines’ consent to operate till further air quality monitoring is done at Sonshi, 12 of the 13 mining leases there will continue to be suspended. The next board meeting is likely to be held on Friday.

The decision was taken after GSPCB officials compared two separate sets of data collected from the ambient air quality monitoring stations installed by them and by the mining companies, and found the numbers did not match.
