  • Online Monthly and Annual Returns under Rule 45 of MCDR 1988 – An integrated Approach.
    • IBM handles a large number of monthly and annual returns from the Mine owners registered under Rule 45 of MCDR, 1988 throughout the year. It became necessary to develop a consolidated and online computerized system to facilitate the effective monitoring and the management activities pertaining to all these process. The Indian Bureau of Mines is effectively and transparently able to monitor the online system of Monthly and annual returns. All the Mine Owners and those engaged in trading, end use, export or stocking of minerals has to register with Indian Bureau of Mines and after that submit Monthly and Annual Forms as per the provision of Rule 45 of MCDR, 1988. Information Technology has made a decisive impact on every branch of human life with both the Central and State Governments making every effort to introduce e-governance to ensure efficiency, promptness, transparency and better citizen-friendly interface. The Union Department of Information Technology is creating a national portal encompassing information on different services extended by the Central and State Governments. This is part of the IT initiative being undertaken by the Government with a view to provide convenience, efficiency, transparency and reliability in the governing services. In its continues effort to bring more transparency the Mines Ministry have conceptualized to develop an On-Line Registration and Reporting System encompassing the provisions of Rule 45 of MCDR, 1988 towards mineral transaction to facilitate the submission of monthly and annual returns. This system is in operation in real time on pan India basis. The focus is on submission of monthly and annual returns as per the forms F1 to F8, H1to H1, N and O specified under MCDR, 1988. In the present system of mineral administration, the onus of the mineral is with the State Governments. The Ministry of Mines has a limited authority, excepting the administration of Mineral Conservation and Development Rules, 1988 (MCDR) through Indian Bureau of Mines. Now the reporting system has been developed to facilitate for submitting the returns on-line. Indian Bureau of Mines will allot and record registration numbers, which will be used for all reporting and correspondence connected to mining, trading, stocking, end use or export of mineral. All the State Government will be able to access the system to view and check the data reported in the returns and can initiate action in case of wrong reporting of data, evasion of royalty, etc. This system has facilitated the stake holders to submit the returns on-line only once and making the same available to various concerned Authorities, thereby increasing the transparency amongst all stake holders as well as Government Organisations. Over a period of time, it has come to the knowledge of the Government of India that malpractices in mining sector have increased due to poor governance at State level leading to enhancement of number of illegal mining cases. The mineral produced from mines, come into the mineral market through trading, stocking, procurement by end-users or import. This situation has necessitated the Government to take stringent measures for monitoring the mining and mineral transactions within the country on pan India basis in order to control malpractices in this sector. In future the system will be linked to Railways, Ports Authorities and Customs Department to check the correctness of the reporting made under the Rule. It is proposed to develop a new system viz. Ore Accounting System for reconciling the data submitted by mine owners, traders, stockiest, end users and exporters. The on-line reporting system is linked to on-line registration system. Broadly the reporting system is divided into two parts. Part-I covers the general information in addition to the employment details. Part-II of the monthly reporting system deals with the grade wise production, dispatches, stock and justification for increase/decrease of production and sale price of minerals, etc. The Part-II of reporting system requires the registration number of the consignee and purpose of sale whether for domestic consumption or export and in case of domestic consumption whether it is made for captive consumption or sale or transfer. This will help in keeping the track of mineral movement within the country from mines to traders, stockists, end user or exporter. The on-line registration system has already put to operation by Indian Bureau of Mines and so far 4898 lease holders (covering 9390 mines), 2345 traders, 476 exporters, 1033 stockist and 1653 end-users have been registered. Further, Indian Bureau of Mines has suspended operations in 1560 mines for non-compliance of provisions of Rule 45 of MCDR, 1988. Out of these it has recommended 21 mines to State Government for termination of lease. The amended Rule 45 of MCDR, 1988 specifies penal action against defaulting mine owners and empowers the Government to order for suspension of all mining operations and may revoke the order of suspension after ensuring proper compliance, take action to initiate prosecution and recommend for termination of mining lease. The Rule further specified that in case of defaulters engaged in trading or storage or end use or export of minerals, the State Government is empowered to order for suspension of trading license, all transport permits issued, storage license for stocking minerals and permits of end use industry, etc. The reporting system is designed to generate violation letters automatically and issue the same to the defaulters who fail to submit the returns by the stipulated date of 11th of every month. In order to ensure tighter implementation, State Governments would be partnered for compliance of traders, stockiest, exporters and end-users. AUDIENCE: The intended audience of this system is: 1. Mine owners/ agent / engineer / manager or any person or company engaged in mining, trading, storage, end-use or export of minerals mined in the country registered under Rule 45 of MCDR, 1988. 2. IBM officers responsible for monitoring, scrutiny of returns submitted online. 3. Ministry of Mines, CCOM office, Regional / Zonal offices and State Directorates of Mining & Geology. 4. The administrator of the system who will maintain, manage and preserve the integrity of the database. 5. Stake holders and general Public. IMPACT: The Web based online system for sharing and visualizing mineral and mining data compiled from diverse agencies has been used for development of a prototype of system which has been successfully implemented by integrating web mapping engine, relational database management system. The effort has proved successful for providing main functions of the system as management, analysis, depiction and visualization and has proved to be a maiden model for effective e-governance based administration for the Government of India. The improvement of the system will be continued and more and more key areas shall be integrated for further elaborative usage.
