As per the Jharkhand Mineral Transit Challan Regulations 2005, to transport mineral from one Source to the destination, the mining lease holder and as well as the dealers( trader or Industry) need to get a transit permit from the concerned mining district office. With the online system the user needs to fill in an online form to submit an application by mentioning the dispatch details.
To start the ePermit system the Lessee after raising, proper dressing, stacking, grading and analysis of the mineral applies to the district Mining Officer (DMO) notifying their intention to remove mineral with details along with consignee & destination in Form A. After final submission of application the system generates Form A by putting unique application No. In case of Dealers, for Procurement, Sale & Onward Transport of the mineral, they apply to the district DMO by mentioning the purpose & destination to remove such mineral in Form F.
The Mining Department officials, checks the consigners mineral Stock, statutory clearances and consignee statutory clearances & Dealer validity. The Inspector of Mines verifies the stacks with reference to the chemical analysis report, area from which mineral raised or procured, balance stock etc. On the basis of the report of Inspector of Mines, the DMO issues instruction to pay Royalty and Income Tax 2% of royalty through online for further approval.
The IT tool developed, automates the validation checking on Environmental, Pollution, Forest, Surface right Clearance of Minimum Production Quantity, Mining Plan Validity, Lease working Status, Dealer Validity of the license, Pollution SPCB Clearance validity of Dealers and checks condition for export through self-account/ Dispatch by port or by road.
