Proper monitoring on execution and appropriate measures are taken by GSI to complete targets on time. GSI has developed mechanism for monitoring of the set targets through Stage Review and Mid Term Review of the projects wherein the progress of the projects are discussed thoroughly and midcourse corrections, if any, are suggested. All projects are reviewed and it is ensured that targetsset are completed on time. Moreover, monthly monitoring of the targets and achievements are carried out both, in GSI, as well as in the Ministry and corrections, if any, are taken up.

Allowing Private Sector in Mineral Exploration 
TheMines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Amendment Act, 2015 (MMDR Amendment Act, 2015) has,besides Mining Lease (ML), two specific provisions for mineral exploration viz. Non-exclusive Reconnaissance Permit [NERP] and Prospecting License-cum-Mining Lease [PL-cum-ML] through which private sector can participate in mineral exploration.

The allocation of mineral blocks through auction is carried out by the respective State Governments. The details of the mineral blocks auctioned to private sector bidders are as follows:

Investment in Mining Sector 
The mining sector has been liberalized since the year 1993 and it is dominated by large number of private sector miners. Under the liberalized economic environment, investment decisions are taken by the entrepreneurs based on their techno-economic feasibility and commercial considerations. However, the proposed project-wise investment details of Public Sector Undertakings under the Ministry of Mines viz Hindustan Copper Limited, National Aluminium Company Limited and Mineral Exploration Corporation Limited are as follows:-
