Vedanta Alumina Project in Lanjigarh, Orissa

Kalahandi is one of the most economically backward districts of Orissa. However, it has rich deposits of bauxite over its hill ranges. Recently the State Government and its corporation have entered into agreement with certain industrial houses for creating infrastructure to extract bauxite and process it. The thickly forested and riverine region of Lanjigarh in Kalahandi is under severe pressure from mining development for bauxite deposits and alumina processing, by the British Vedanta Group, in collaboration with State of Orissa, Orissa Mining Corporation and also, Ministry of Environment and Forests.
