A meeting has been called to decide about the remaining 30 applications by the committee set up for monitoring the sand mining in the district. The committee is headed by the DC.

She said that apart from the 30 applications, the remaining four, which were rejected owing to various legal charges against the applicants, also be considered in the meeting.
