At the time of independence, the mining in the country was conventional and large labour intensive. A change from manual to mechanised has changed the environmental scenario. India is richly endowed with mineral resources. These comprise fossil fuels, ferrous and non-ferrous ores, fertilizers, refractory and other industrial minerals. Its growing domestic market for consumption of minerals promises a vast potential for growth of the mining industry. Mining, the process of extracting minerals from earth, interferes with the elements of environmental, the complex aggregate of external conditions affecting life growth and survival, and that includes land, water, air flora and fauna in many ways. Although mining is a transitory use of land, there is no need to render the land unusable for any purpose subsequently. Thus, environment management is nothing but resource management and environmental planning is just the same as development planning. The present paper focuses in brief about the major environmental parameters, importance of impact assessment processes and bases of efficient environmental management practices in mining areas
