If the processes are fast tracked and necessary clearances are given to private miners, better development can be achieved in lesser amount of time. Our country has a reserve if 500 Million Tonnes of ilmenite, however the production is a meager 8 lakh tones annually. Same for Zircon, the resource base is estimated to be over 32 Million tones, but production is just 35,000 tonnes.
