SHILLONG, August 02: The Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) has announced its decision not to allow any uranium mining under its jurisdiction which includes the mineral-rich areas of South West Khasi Hills (SWKH) district.


“The present executive committee takes this opportunity to announce its final decision of not to allow uranium mining under the jurisdiction of the Council,” KHADC chief HS Shylla said after conducting an inspection at Mawthabah village on Thursday.
Shylla had led a delegation of executive members, NGO leaders from the KSU and HYC during the inspection which was conducted following the alleged exploratory drilling of uranium by the Atomic Minerals Directorate (AMD) recently.
