Minister Jauramajra warns of stern action against officials involved in illegal mining

Stating that illegal mining will not be tolerated under any circumstances, Punjab Water Resources, Mining & Geology, and Soil and Water Conservation Minister S. Chetan Singh Jauramajra on Tuesday categorically said that stern action will be initiated against the officials involved in illegal mining and those are not collecting royalties.

During a marathon meeting with MLAs from Majha and officials from the water resources, mining & geology, and soil & water conservation departments in Amritsar, the Cabinet Minister said that royalties of soil being used for major projects should be ensured to be deposited in the government treasury.

He highlighted that despite the construction of hundreds of kilometers of national highways in the state, their actual royalties have not been collected and asked officials for vigilance and proper attention to these projects.

In a firm tone, he warned of departmental action against any officer showing negligence in addressing issues related to illegal mining and royalty.
