Previously Most of the Beach Mineral Players established sophisticated factory for value addition. Due to the Government order all the private players are stopped in India. Now only IREL alone operate the Beach Minerals. They make double price for the same product and their price and sale conditions also vary from party to party. This will make Indian Titanium Producers and other value added producers to face huge loss. So many times, representations were given to Government as well as IREL through various channels. But no action. So we filed a petition before the Competition Commission.
After hearing both sides, the Competition Commission pass a detailed order for conduct investigation against IREL by the Director General. Copy of order is given below.
