Not only Sesa Goa but Goan economy in general has been hit hard by the mining ban, he said.
He added: "The matter needs urgent attention of the authorities as about one third of the population is dependent on mining. With due respect to all the authorities, I don't find a sense of urgency to resolve the matter. I am open to discuss it at any forum."
On Karnataka, where Sesa Goa's capacity has been pruned to 2.29 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) from 6 MTPA, he said that the company is hopeful of resuming its operations soon but again it depends on apex court permission.
"Our Reclamation and Rehabilitation plan has already been cleared by the Central Empowered Committee (CEC). Now we are waiting for directions from the apex court," he said.
