Government has exempted 165 District Mineral Foundation (DMF) from income tax payment. Earlier, 151 DMF trusts were exempted from tax which has been increased to 165.

In a series of tweets, Coal and Mines Minister Pralhad Joshi said the collections under DMF as well as interest accrued will be exempted from IT.

Mr Joshi said a Gazette notification has been issued to this effect.

The Minister expressed hope the decision will result in more fund availability with the trust and ensuring better implementation and outcome-oriented activities for the welfare of mining affected people.

The DMF is a non-profit statutory trust for every Indian district affected by mining-related operations.

It is an initiative of the Central government to ensure that funds collected under DMF should be utilised for welfare of those affected by mining-related operations.
