The National Green Tribunal Thursday set up an experts committee to inspect the controversial copper smelter plant of Sterlite Industries in Tuticorin and submit its report April 29.
MDMK on Tuesday said it would challenge the Supreme Court`s order asking Sterlite Industries, a subsidiary of UK-based Vedanta Group to pay Rs 100 crore as compensation for polluting the environment.
Sterlite Industries had moved the apex court against the order of the high court which had on September 28, 2010, ordered shutting down of the smelting plant.
The Supreme Court Monday asked the Ministry of Environment and Forests to respond to a plea of the OMC challenging the withdrawal of environmental and forest clearances for its bauxite mining project in Niyamgiri hills in Orissa.
Sterlite Industries, the flagship company of Vedanta Group, on Thursday reported a 27.9 percent decline in consolidated net profit at Rs 1,240.33 crore for the second quarter ended September 30, 2009.
Vedanta group firm Sterlite Industries on Wednesday reported a net profit of Rs 672.66 crore for the first quarter ended June 30, 2009, down 41.56 per cent over the corresponding period a year ago.
