Itanagar, Mar 3 (PTI) Arunachal Pradesh Mines and
Mineral Minister Kamlung Mossang on Wednesday said that the
state government has approved MSTC Ltd to carry out e-auction
of quartzite blocks with an allocation of Rs 75 lakh at
Kalaktang, in West Kameng district.
MSTC Limited is a PSU under the administrative control
of the Union Ministry of Steel.
Replying to a question of BJP MLA from Kalaktang
constituency, Dorjee Wangdi Kharma during Question Hour on
delay in implementing the e-auction, the minister informed
that the MoU with the company could not be executed last year
due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“A meeting was recently held with the company and the
MoU to be executed has been modified and accordingly the
process will begin soon,” Mossang said.
He added that the amount of Rs 75 lakh for e-auction
was earmarked in the 2020-21 budget.
Responding to a supplementary, the minister informed
that the Mineral Exploration Corporation Limited (MECL)
undertook a survey of the quartzite blocks at Kalaktang and
dolomite blocks at Rupa in the district during 2011-12 and
Mossang said that the survey estimated a total of 5.27
metric tonnes of quartzite at Kalaktang in an area of 100
hectares. PTI UPL
