According to him, some of them have also gone ahead and submitted their mining plans, which will then get approval from different agencies, after which the scientific mining process can start. 

He further informed that the process is based on the Supreme Court ruling that came out in July 2019. He added the process is a complicated process, so the government will wait and watch. However, the process is on.
