The district administration has directed that the rate of sand should not exceed Rs 1,800 per truck in the City limits.

The decision was taken at a meeting of sand supliers convened by the District-in-Charge Minister J Krishna Palemar and the Deputy Commissioner V Ponnuraj here on Monday. Palemar after announcing the rate ceiling, said that the new price ceiling is subject to change.

The price ceiling for other parts of the district including Bantwal, Sullia and Belthangady will be fixed soon, he said adding that a committee will be formed, if needed, to fix price in those regions.

Uniform permits
It was decided based on the requests of sand suppliers that uniform permits will be issued in the district. Currently, the Department of Mines and Geology issues permits, which allows suppliers to transport sand only through prescribed routes such as Mangalore - Puttur or Mangalore - Udupi.
However, once the uniform permit was issued, suppliers can transport sand anywhere within the State.

Validity of permits
The DC said that the validity of the uniform permits will expire in two days. However, there will be no restriction on the number of trips.
The new rule specifically prohibits the transportation of sand to other states, he said and warned, “heavy fines will be imposed if sand was transported outside the State.
Further, he said that suppliers will be allowed to store sand only at places, which are identified by the department.
