Too many rules

THE detailed report on mining in Orissa ('Mining over the line', IE, November 8) draws attention to the maze of regulatory provisions and agencies that mining companies must traverse before they are allowed to operate. Between the MMDR Act, the Indian Bureau of Mines, the Orissa Pollution Control Board and other regulatory bodies, it would be a wonder that anybody can undertake any mining activity without infringing on some law or regulation. So much red tape in our governance could strangle investment and growth.
