The authority to issuance permits to transport sand, earth and gravel has been vested with the Divisional Secretaries.
The Geological Survey and Mines Bureau is making the relevant arrangements. The Bureau said that the required documents and instructions will be provided to the Divisional Secretariats. These permits can be used for transportation only within the jurisdiction of the Divisional Secretariat Divisions. A limit has been imposed on the transportation as only two cubes of sand can be transported under one permit. Only 100 cubes of sand can be mined in one Divisional Secretariat area. Limits will be imposed on the transportation of earth and gravel as well aiming environmental conservation.
