(Removes extraneous word in headline)
    NEW DELHI, Feb 18 (Reuters) - India's Supreme Court on
Monday set aside an order by an environmental court which had
cleared the way for reopening Vedanta's  VDAN.NS  south Indian
copper smelter, in a blow to the company's plans to begin
operations.
    The government of Tamil Nadu state ordered the smelter shut
permanently in May after violent protests at the plant in the
city of Thoothukudi in which 13 people were killed.

    In December, India's National Green Tribunal (NGT) revoked
the state decision to shut the plant, prompting the state
government to appeal in the Supreme Court.
