Mining companies are taking the lead in the scam.
The state’s biggest mining company, Bhaktivedanta Bhaktapur, and the Indian Minerals Corporation, or IMC, are responsible for about 80% of the world’s supply of mineral water.
The companies are also responsible for a large portion of the Indian public water supply.
The mining companies say the water is safe.
But critics say it’s tainted with harmful chemicals.
A recent study by the American Civil Liberties Union found that water quality tests of water from mines and other mining operations in India have consistently failed to meet international standards.
In a recent case in Maharashtra, an Indian mining company and its contractors were convicted of criminal negligence for contaminating a public water source with toxic chemicals.
The chemicals were banned as hazardous waste in 2005.
This week, a court in Kerala ordered IMC to pay nearly $2 million to villagers who allege they were treated with harmful chemical compounds.
They were allegedly exposed to the chemicals while they were in the care of IMC workers.
“The government of Kerala has failed to protect the people from this corruption,” said A.K. Balasubramanian, a human rights activist and member of the All India Progressive Alliance of Peoples Fronts.
“This is not about mining or mining rights; it’s about people’s water,” he said.
The Indian government has taken a series of steps to improve water quality and safety, including making the water industry more transparent and providing financial incentives to ensure clean water.
But the country’s mining industry is far from a gold standard.
There are more than 400 mines in India.
Many of them operate without government oversight.
The IMC has been involved in a string of water-related controversies, including a $7 million settlement with a local water body in the western state of Uttar Pradesh in which the company and a number of its employees were accused of poisoning drinking water sources.
In 2014, a state government in Uttar Pradesh awarded IMC the contract to provide water to a school in the village of Thamrongkara, which is part of the state of Jharkhand.
The company said it only used water from a local source and that the water was safe.
The complaint against IMC was dropped.
However, the court found that IMC’s conduct was not sufficient to justify a criminal charge.
“We have found IMC not guilty on this case and ordered that the company be penalised on the basis of the criminal law,” the court said.
It said IMC could not be punished for water contamination because the company was operating in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.
In December, the Supreme Court ruled in a case involving IMC that it is in violation of Indian law by supplying water to schools.
“There is no question that the IMC is an efficient water supplier and that its activities have been conducted in a way which meets the applicable standards,” the Supreme Judicial Court said.
“It has to be noted that this does not mean that IMCA is in breach of the law.
The law does not allow it to operate in a manner that violates the law.”
The court’s ruling in the Thamrsongkars case came as a shock to IMC.
The court said that IMCT failed to take necessary steps to ensure water quality in the villages.
“Immediate action is needed to prevent the water from being polluted by the companies,” the verdict said.
