9 Dead As Police Fire During Anti-Sterlite Protest In Tamil Nadu's Tuticorin
Sterlite was the first company set up by UK-based Indian billionaire Anil Agarwal in India before he launched Vedanta Resources on the LSE in 2003, where it is now a multinational with operations across India and Africa.
Meanwhile, a Vedanta group release said, "The plant has received the necessary regulatory clearances for expansion and our primary commitment is to ensure the development and well-being of all the communities around our operations."
"Zero discharge systems, utilisation of waste for sustainable applications, energy efficient systems and stringent emission monitoring are the hallmark of Sterlite and these will only be strengthened through the expansion," it said.
"The smelter plant is self-reliant in terms of power and water requirements and will not use any nearby natural resources," it added.
Last month, after top district officials led by Sub-Collector MS Prasanth failed to reach an understanding, around 250 people on an indefinite fast protesting against the Sterlite Copper plant and its proposed expansion were arrested.
