    Legal limits to tribal governance: coal mining in Meghalaya, India

    Chr. Michelsen Institute, Norway, 2017
    Land in Meghalaya, India, was traditionally agricultural land, owned by the community. With increasing privatization and rising commercial value of land for non-agricultural use, many owners have sold the land for mining operations. So-called rat-hole coal mining has resulted in environmental degradation as well as in the loss of lives of miners, most of whom are from outside the state.
