Govt coal mine operating on illegal land, Lease expired long back: RTI reply

My name is Ishwar Soren. I am calling from village Chhota Simra in Godda district in Jharkhand. In my area Lalmatia open cast mine is operational of Eastern Coal field ltd under their Rajmahal project. According to RTI reply the lease of land got expired in 2003 and new application was not proper. The villagers were given compensation for 15 years which expired long back. Govt is not taking action knowing that the mine is illegal. Sorenji@09199533265
