Govt unveils TAMRA portal for transparent mining clearance

Aimed at bringing transparency in granting clearances for mining operations, the Centre on Wednesday launched TAMRA mobile application and portal.

Transparency Auction Monitoring and Resource Augmentation (TAMRA) portal and mobile application has been developed by the Ministry of Mines.

Launching the portal and mobile application, Power and Mines Minister Piyush Goyal said the government aims to double the contribution of the mining sector to GDP, and it is possible soon. At present, it is 0.76%.

 TAMRA covers block-, state- and mineral-wise information of the blocks to be auctioned, monitors various statutory clearances and also highlights the additional resources generated through e-auction.

In case of delay in obtaining any clearances, TAMRA will send out triggers to the authority concerned so that remedial steps can be taken immediately.

 The mines ministry will also receive triggers generated by TAMRA, which will facilitate expediting clearances in case the timelines set against each of the statutory clearances are not met. Further, the status of each of the clearances will be reflected on the portal.

 The portal also enables the successful bidder to provide suggestions and other inputs for improving the current process of issuing statutory clearances in the mining sector, the minister said.
