Understanding the legal status of sand mining is important before pursuing any remedy or seeking a regulatory response from concerned authorities. Here’s how it can be done.

The river beds, banks, fish and all the other organisms living in and around the river are a major source of livelihood for the traditional communities who live there. The river beds have sand, which is extracted for both domestic and commercial use. However, the excessive removal of sand, boulders and stones from the rivers, creeks, estuaries and beaches can destroy the river beds, affect the fish catch and clam collection in that region. It may cause river bank erosion, changes in the flow pattern, intrusion of saltwater into adjacent water bodies.
