The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed the Vedanta industry to run an oxygen production unit at a sterlite copper factory in Thoothukudi Tamil Nadu with a base “Mandiri”, the day after the Tamil Nadu government gave permission to be reopened for medical oxygen production for four months, Ani news agency reported.

On Monday, hours after the Tamil Nadu government’s decision, Vedanta opposed the top court advice from last week to let the state government operate an oxygen production unit at the factory, “it is right outside the competence and the government’s financial capacity to run this oxygen plant Of course. ”

Last week, Vedanta approached the Supreme Court for permission to operate an oxygen production unit at the sterlite plant, which was closed in May 2018 after 13 people were killed in police shots while protesting at the factory.
