VV Minerals Has All The Legal Documents To Mine And Export, Says VV Mineral Chairman

VV Minerals India is one of the leading sand beach mining companies in the country. The company was established in the late 1980s by S Vaikundarajan and has won several national awards for its contribution to the export business.

Recently, however, several allegations of illegal beach sand mining have surfaced against the company. Despite no substantial proof to support these allegations, the company’s hard earned reputation seems to have taken a hit. Vaikundarajan has stated that VV Minerals has operated within legal boundaries and the allegation is a ploy by competitors to defame the company.

Following these allegations, an investigation team was set up by the then Chief Minister Jayalalitha to probe in to the matter across five districts of the state. IAS officer Gagandeep Singh Bedi headed the special investigation team.

Vaikundarajan Thwarts Illegal Mining Allegations against His Company

Following the allegations of illegal beach mining in South against some companies; the State Government set up an investigating team to probe into the matter.

With the team yet to reach its conclusion, the coastal population has shown little or no faith in the team’s efforts. The population consisting of Fishermen United Front have expressed their reservations against the functioning of investigation team. The reason for this is yet to be revealed.

Founder of VV Minerals India, S Vaikundarajan is accused of using his political influence over the matters concerning illegal mining activities. None of these allegations have been supported by strong evidence. Vaikundarajan maintains that the company has operated within legal boundaries for over 20 years and will continue to do so.

Brand’s reputation was further tainted when two former IAS officers stated that VV Minerals have engaged in illegal beach sand mining in the southern districts. Vaikundarajan was quick to play down these allegations. He further expressed his support for the investigating team and assured that the results will be in favour of the company.

VV Minerals India was founded in late 1980s and has been running under the tutelage of Vaikundarajan. The founder publicly thwarted all allegations as a defamation plot by rival mining industries.

While there is no conclusive evidence to support any allegation against the company; several fishermen in the region have threatened to leave their houses. Vaikundarajan stated that the allegations have no credibility and the threats are simply uncalled for.

“We have complete faith in judiciary and believe the investigation team will do its job. We lend our complete support to the team,” he added.
