Key discussions focused on establishing a District Level Task Force Committee to monitor mining operations, formulating the Annual Action Plan for the District Mineral Foundation Trust (DMFT), revising rates of minor minerals, and converting measurements from Cubic Feet (CFT) to Metric Tons (MT). The meeting also addressed the implementation of a single window clearance system for obtaining No Objection Certificates (NOCs) from various departments.

The discussions primarily focused on strengthening control and regulatory measures to ensure strict compliance with mining rules. Deliberations also took place regarding the Pradhan Mantri Khanij Kshetra Kalyan Yojana (PMKKKY) scheme, which utilizes DMFT funds for priority sector projects in areas such as drinking water, education, healthcare, capacity building, and environmental protection.
The meeting addressed the revision of rates and the conversion of measurement units from CFT to MT. It was decided that existing rates would be enforced without any hike.
To streamline administrative processes, the meeting stressed the implementation of a single window clearance system. Officers were instructed to provide NOCs based on the format devised by the Jammu and Kashmir Environmental Impact Assessment Authority (JKEIAA).
