Raipur, June 1 (IANS) The Chhattisgarh government Monday said its royalty earnings from minerals rose 20 percent in 2008-09 to Rs.1,237 crore.


'The state had made earnings of Rs.1,237.29 crore from minerals in 2008-09, comparing to Rs.1,028.38 crore in 2007-08, registering an overall 20 percent increase,' an official statement said.

The state government is now seeking 'value-based' royalty on coal and iron ore.



'The state is getting just Rs.18 per tonne as royalty on iron-ore. While after value addition, the steel manufacturers are selling the product for about Rs.30,000 a tonne,' Chief Minister Raman Singh had said last month.
