Vedanta mulls options for Indian iron ore workers after shutdown
Updated : June 15, 2018 06:20 AM IST
The Supreme Court in February cancelled all iron ore extraction permits in the southwestern state of Goa and ordered mining to cease from March 16 on environmental and other concerns.
London-listed Vedanta, controlled by Indian billionaire Anil Agarwal, has come under increased scrutiny in the country since police opened fire on protesters, killing 13, at a demonstration against its copper smelter in southern India last month.
Vedanta said in late March it was likely to record an impairment charge of up to $600 million following the closure of the iron ore business.
