As if the catalogue of violations by Vedanta’s Goan iron mining subsidiary, revealed earlier this month, wasn’t enough,  it’s now accused of major fraud. India’s Serious Fraud Office is said to have ordered prosecution of Sesa Goa on eight counts, including its over- and under- invoicing of exports and imports of ore.
Meanwhile, the government of Karnataka (where Vedanta is also accused of illegally operating)  has “de-listed” all mining projects that are currently awaiting environmental clearance.
