Rs 2.8L fine on trader for trying to sell imported sand

Tirupur: The Tirupur district administration on Saturday imposed a positive of about Rs 2.8 lakh on an importer for looking to illegally promote imported sand from Malaysia in Tamil Nadu.
The administration had seized 31 gadgets of sand from 9 trucks and handed it over to the public works department (PWD).

On February 16, Udumalpet revenue officers found the 9 trucks transporting the sand from the Cochin Port. “We imagine the Kerala-based importer has bought the sand to promote in Kerala once you have due permission. But he did not receive approval from Tamil Nadu’s PWD to promote the sand here,” stated a revenue official.

Each truck was carrying 3 and a part gadgets of sand to deliver the consignment at Vayalur close to Palani in Dindigul district. “Since Tamil Nadu has banned the direct sales of imported sand without approval handiest in the last December, Udumalpet revenue divisional officers had consulted the state’s geology and mining department before seizing the vehicles,” stated the official.

On Saturday, the revenue officers imposed a positive of Rs 31,000 for each and every truck and seized the 31 gadgets of sand. They launched the trucks after the importer paid the positive.

“We have handed over the sand to the PWD, which stored it in its office on Sardar Road at Udumalpet. After conducting high quality test, the PWD would possibly use it for government sanctioned construction paintings,” stated a senior revenue official.
