Vedanta's response to news appearing in London media

Vedanta believes in continuous dialoguing with all the stakeholders and always endeavors to address the issues raised by any of them…Vedanta refuted all such allegations as baseless and responded to the shareholders accordingly. During AGM, some of the shareholders also raised objections on flaring of such irrelevant issues without any rationale and insisted for conducting the AGM adhering to the agenda so that their main concerns could be duly addressed. Vedanta has clarified that being a responsible and law abiding Corporate, it shall under no circumstances contravene the law of the land…Vedanta shall ensure that all relevant Acts and Laws applicable to the Tribal Communities living around its Lanjigarh Project are fully complied without fail.
