National Seminar on Geosciences and Sustainable Development in Tribal Areas (NSGSDTA-24)

Tentative Date: 15 & 16 November 2024

The purposed National Seminar is planned for two days, covering the role of industrial activities like mining, energy resource, educational facility and self employment schemes for triblal people in tribal area and short fall in implementing them. Scientists and technocrats from government departments like GSI, AMD, MoES, DGM, IBM, PSUs WCL, Coal India, NHPC, NTPC, MOIL, MRSAC, research institutions like NGRI, NEERI, IIT and private entrepreneurs are expected to participate in this Seminar along with few tribal leaders and social workers. The experts from fields of exploration, mining, energy resource exploitations and tribal area development, pollution control, will enlighten the participants about the proposals and their implementation in India.
