Per the request of the Ministry Mines, Government of India, this non-lending technical assistance (NLTA) aimed at supporting the Indian Bureau of Mines, a subordinate office of the Ministry of Mines, in developing strategic and institutional capacity to better regulate, manage, and monitor mining and inclusive growth related issues. The TA supported: (1) the implementation of the United Nations framework classification (UNFC) classification and quantification system for India, (2) the preparation of an efficient licensing system supported by an online tenement system, and (3) further development and implementation of a sustainable development framework (SDF) for mining in India. To achieve these objectives, this NLTA provided convergent assistance to the Government of India at both the federal level (Indian Bureau of Mines) and state level with support to the Government of Odisha (State Planning Commission and Department of Steel and Mines) as a pilot project and proof of concept for an integrated planning process to mining. Based on the pilot, the study also provided recommendations on strengthening the knowledge base and institutional arrangements for integrated planning, as well as on key actions for improved management in mineralized regions in India that takes into account environmental and social impacts. In addition, the Bank further facilitated the sharing of international best practice on reporting mineral resources and reserves by organizing a major conference at the request of the Government of India on sustainable mining and the UNFC system.
