Ministry of Mines has launched Web Portal for Star Rating of Major Mineral Mines. The Portal was launched by the Minister of State for Mines, Power, Coal and New & Renewable Energy, Piyush Goyal yesterday. According to official release, Mr. Goyal said the Scheme of Star Rating will be a vital step for ensuring compliance of environmental protection and social responsibility by the mining sector and has given a deadline for Star Rating of all mines by 31st of December, 2016.
Based on the performance of the mining leases, a one to five star rating would be given

to the mines. The positive impact of getting higher Star Rating will drive miners to quickly adopt sustainable mining practices. 
A web enabled online system for evaluation of measures has been developed with the help of National Institute of Smart Governance (NISG), Hyderabad.  The Ministry through Indian Bureau of Mines has developed a template for Scheme of Star Rating of Mines. The main objective of this system is to bring all mines to a minimum standard of Star Rating in the shortest possible time frame to adopt sustainable practices.
