Seeking modifications to the Supreme Courts last year's order imposing blanket ban on mining in Goa, iron ore producer Sesa Goa on Tuesday requested for permission to transport, sale and export 4.766 million tonne of already-mined iron ore lying at various locations in the state. Sesa Goa said that such lifting of ban on exports would boost the states economy.

A bench headed by Justice TS Thakur posted the firms plea for hearing on Wednesday after senior counsel Mukul Rohtagi sought early hearing in the matter.
