Yes,in most of cases the mining is directly or indirectly controlled by politicians or beaurocratsandnot by common person. more  
Dear Transparency International and all its advocates,corruption is not going to be lessened even by a penny by all those half hearted impractical empty talks and suggestions.Now it is the biggest industry in India penetrating its roots through each and every organisations and establishments.If you expect the politicians and Bureaucrats to devise ways to root out corruption then it is like expecting the blood hound wolves to devise ways to make them all vegetarian.If you people are really serious then let us form a group, identify and behead 1000 most corrupt people every year and at the end of 5 years you will not find any corruption in India. more  
Mining is such a issue where politicians and anti social elements are directly involved. Most of the mining operations are controlled by anti social elements and owned by politicians. MP Lad funds are also used. Police, a district Administration, Mining Department are paid heavily and pressurised for these activities. There is theft of all taxes and duties. Unless Government is serious these type of problems can not be tackled more
