The recent allegations of illegal sand beach mining has caused quite a stir in the export industry. The state government has set up an investigation team to look into the matter. One company to find itself in the midst of the controversy is VV Minerals. Founded by S Vaikundarajan in the late 1980s, VV Mineral Mining is one of the largest mining companies in the country. It is also known to be the largest producer and exporter of Garnet and Ilmenite.
Being the biggest player in the mining industry, it doesn’t come as a surprise that all allegations are pointed at VV Mineral. However, VV Mineral Vaikundarajan makes a valid point when stating that a scam of this extent is practically impossible for one company to pull off.
