DIMAPUR, Dec 25 - To curb illegal transportation of coal from Nagaland, State Directorate of Geology and Mining has decided to strictly enforce Nagaland Coal Policy (first amendment) 2014 and accordingly asked the police and administration to cross-check the coal challans and also assist district-in-charges of the department.
Observing that unscrupulous elements may approach licensees for utilising Nagaland coal challans to carry coal extracted from neighbouring States due to restriction imposed by National Green Tribunal (NGT), the circular cautioned not to entertain any such misuse of Nagaland coal challans or counterfeit, fake, duplicate challan using the name of the licensees.
