Identifying loopholes and implementation issues in a recent law for the development of mining-affected areas

In mineral-rich areas across India, and around the world, mining often fails to benefit local residents, degrades lands and rivers and destroys traditional livelihoods. In 2015, a new Indian programme, the Pradhan Mantri Khanij Kshetra Kalyan Yojana (PMKKKY), which means the Prime Minister’s Development Programme for Mining-Affected Regions, was established to remedy this anomaly by creating a fund for local area development from a levy on mining operations.

This case study was written by Shreya Shah, of IndiaSpend, and is part of Publish What You Pay’s Data Extractors programme, a pilot programme which trained PWYP members and activists from across our network to use extractives data.
