All Activities Within Legal Boundaries, Says VV Minerals India
S Vaikundarajan founded VV Minerals India in late 1980s. Being a simple man of simple tastes, there is little information on him and his family.

However, recently he has been in the news for allegations of illegal beach sand mining. Ashwin Kumar, IAS officer from Tuticorin and V Sundaram, an ex-IAS officer are the two civil servants who have raised allegations against him and his company. After stating his ire in media, the former received transfer orders which were blamed as an act by VV Mineral Vaikundarajan himself. 

VV Minerals India has dismissed all allegations and urged that the investigating team will soon come up with a report in his favor.

VV Mineral Vaikundarajan is often seen in white shirt and dhoti by locals. VV Minerals is the first private company to win a license to mine minerals and export them. The company has won several national awards for its contribution to the export business.

As of now, the National Green Tribunal has banned sand mining in coastal areas. Following the ban, the government has set up an investigating team to look into the issue. VV Mineral loyalists have maintained their support for the company.

VV Mineral Vaikundarajan himself has openly offered his support to the investigating committee.
