The Supreme Court on Tuesday said that the ban on the export and transportation of iron ore in Karnataka will be revoked from April 20. 

The apex court bench of Justice R V Raveendran and Justice A K Patnaik passed the interim order after it was told that the Karnataka Prevention of Illegal Mining, Transportation and Storage of Minerals Rules for regulating iron ore mining and transportation have been notified on April 1, 2011. 

The court gave the Karnataka government 15 days, which it had sought, to put in place the infrastructure to enforce the new rules to prevent illegal mining of iron ore and its transportation. 

The court said that the state government should take into consideration the report of the Lokayukta Santosh Hegde on illegal mining while implementing the rules. The court noted that senior counsel K V Vishwanathan had told the apex court that the state government had taken the suggestion of the Lokayukta seriously and would act on it.
