Mumtaz Ali Khan said that in the meantime a Task Force would be constituted at district and taluk-level to curb illegal sand transportation in the region.
Explaining the measure that would be taken to stop the illegal sand mining, Khan said that the rules laid down by the Mining department would be enforced strictly. Sand transportation will be allowed only from 6 am to 6 pm. Mechanised sand mining and mining beyond 3 feet will be banned completely. Lorries loading sand beyond 10 tonnes will be fined and permits of those lorries will be cancelled which are once again held for over-loading.
