Plea against ban on iron ore transport

Days after the State Government banned the transport of iron ore, a mining firm on Thursday petitioned the Karnataka High Court against the ban. Lad and Lad, which is one of the firms engaged in mining in Bellary district, petitioned the High Court against an order banning transport of iron ore.

It said the Government does not have jurisdiction to impose such a ban. It termed as arbitrary and illegal the ban and urged the court to set it aside.
