A few months ago, a city-based Human Rights Protection Centre (HRPC) from Tamil Nadu planned to file a case of illegal beach sand mining issue on companies in the three districts of Tuticorin, Tirunelveli and Kanyakumari before the Supreme Court. Like, there have been others that have sought to taint VV Mineral’s name.
The company has been able to prove itself innocent. Mr. S. Vaikundarajan, VV Minerals owner, was claimed to have been a part of the beach mineral mining scam. However, after a detailed investigation by the Indian Bureau of Mines which is run by the Ministry of Mines, the case against the garnet and ilmenite was dropped, as they were innocent.
VV Minerals, India was established in the year 1989, and has grown ever since. The top management includes Mr. V Subramanian, Mr. J Muthurajan, and Mr. Jegatheesan as the managing directors. The Chairman and managing director is Mr. S. Vaikundarajan. They mainly deal with zircon mining, garnet mining, ilmenite mining and rutile mining.
