Mr Dinsha Patel minister of state for mines (independent charge) informed the Rajya Sabha that the overall index for mining sector has shown growth of 7.90% in 2009-10 and 5.25% in 2010-11, where as non fuel and non coal minerals, the index has declined marginally by 0.35% in 2009-10 as compared to 2008-09 and then increased by 0.41% in 2010-11.

However, in the year 2011-12(April-September) the overall index for mining sector has decreased by about 1% and for non-fuel and non coal minerals by 1.45%, as compared to same period in the previous year.
