The Goa mining industry was banned form conducting further operations in 2012 when the new political party came to power. After almost half a decade, the mining industry will witness revenues of almost Rs 400 crore that were due until this time period.The Chief Minister of Goa, Laxmikant Parsekar told PTI, “After the BJP government was sworn in 2012, the main source of income, which used to be mining, had come to a standstill, resulting in loss of about Rs 1,200-1,300 crore annually in the last four years. The ban on the mining industry has resulted in a loss of around Rs 5,000 crore.”Parsekar further added, “The government expects a revenue of Rs 300-400 crore in the coming financial year, which will also be reflected in the estimates of the Budget, to be tabled on March 16.”
