Anil Agarwal, the chairman of Vedanta, has urged the establishment of a policy system that encourages young entrepreneurs to work in the mining industry, particularly with regard to metals that are essential to new technologies. According to him, the establishment of large-scale mines will also benefit India in reducing its reliance on imports.
The key in India is to provide young businesspeople the freedom to conduct research and the ability to sell their finds to sizable mining firms, who will put them into production. He stated that encouraging exploration and liberalizing markets might be a game-changer for startups and that doing so will help India rank among the world’s top three economies. “Time is of the essence,” he said.
One of the top firms dealing in natural resources is Vedanta, a division of Vedanta Resources Limited, which has operations in the following sectors: oil & gas, zinc, lead, silver, copper, iron ore, steel, nickel, aluminum, power, and glass substrates. It also has operations in South Africa, Namibia, Liberia, the United Arab Emirates, Korea, Taiwan, and Japan. Additionally, it is experimenting with semiconductors and display glass.
The price of Vedanta’s shares has increased by around 2% during August 3, 2022. In contrast, the Nifty 50 headline index has increased by more than 12%.
