Amaravati: For those who want sand, click on the APMDC Sand Portal for booking, with detailed information. It also shows how much sand is stored in any stockyard in the state. Sand supplies can be booked from the stockyard in the vicinity.
Sakshi, Amaravati: No more mafia gangs have to resort to sand for the state. How much is there? How much is the rate here? There is no need to do that. Andhra Pradesh Mineral Development Corporation (APMDC), a state-owned enterprise, will no longer offer sand at reasonable prices. The company makes arrangements to supply sand directly to the area where the sand is booked online. You can book sand from any part of the state by going to APMDC Sand Portal. To this end, the government has formulated a new policy framework for sand supply. The YS Jaganmohan Reddy government has abolished the old policy and created a new policy aimed at increasing the revenue of the government for the sand mafia of the TDP leaders who have been running for the last five years and increasing the public revenue without putting any additional burden on the people. With its agenda of making the people transparent, the new government has decided to keep the sand dunes out of the hands of private persons and be under the government’s control of the Andhra Pradesh Sand System (Framework) – 2019. It will be sent to the Chief Minister for scrutiny and approved. Subsequently, the new policy will be implemented with the approval of the Cabinet with the approval of the GO.
Free on small rivers In small rivers and streams, the sand can be carried for free by the people. Smaller rivers (One to Third Order River Streams) are under the supervision of the district authority. From this, local people can take the sand for their own needs. Even the weaker sections of the house can take the sand for free. The government has decided to provide this benefit for the benefit of the poor. Small-scale government works can take the sand out of it by paying a fee for the synergy. These should not be used for sand mining and loading. Only the towns and villages within the zone can take sand from these. The bureaucracy takes measures to prevent sand from passing through these small rivers.
All the big rivers are APMDC The government has delegated the responsibility of sand mining in big rivers like Krishna, Godavari, Tungabhadra, Penna, and Vamsadhara (4, 5 and higher river streams) and selling it to the public at affordable prices. District collectors take all legal, environmental and other permits for sand mining. APMDC is the nodal agency and makes arrangements to provide the public with the necessary sand. The district collectors have signed agreements with APMDC to enable the public (consumers) to dig sand from the docks. The APMDC stores the sand dug in rivers near the stockyards.
There are more than 395 large sand docks in the state. However, at present only one hundred Reichs have environmental and other legal permissions. The rest of the district collects permits for environmental, mining plans, REACH and maintenance. APMDC will set up sand stockyards (storage centers) near all types of permissible quarries. APMDC calls for tenders for selection of contractors for sand mining in quarries and moving them to stockyards. The reverse tendering process is designed to be completely transparent without any irregularities and protective bias. Sand will be provided to people from stockyards. In Telangana state, a similar pattern is now in place. There are currently about 400 tonnes of sand sold at Rs. Officials have also proposed to put a similar price in the state in view of the cost of sand mining and loading. (The price may change according to the government’s final decision.)

Desalination sand for irrigation projects Drainage projects, reservoirs, and barrages accumulate in the sand along with flood water. This reduces water storage capacity. Therefore, it is necessary to increase the water storage capacity by extracting sand by desalination. The Water Resources Department should utilize the sand extracted for the construction of irrigation projects. The Department of Water Resources should take measures to prevent sand dumping along with the necessary permits for mining sand through desalination. In addition to the Sandage charges for sand dumping, other taxes have to be paid to the mining department. Transit passes should also be obtained from the Underground Mines Assistant for sand evacuation. If the officials of the Department of Water Resources are entrusted with the responsibility of drilling the so-called sand in the reservoirs, they should hand over the sand mined to the APMDC. APMDC pays the amount for the distillation. There are some duty procedures for this.
In graduated lands ..In the surrounding areas of the river, the sand dunes of farmers are graduated. During floods, these graduated lands become sand dunes. APMDC can negotiate with farmers to dig and sell sand on such lands. 10% of the proceeds of the sale of the sand will be given to the landowners. Farmers are allowed to dump sand directly on their land. The government has to pay 5% of the additional price they sell, along with the minimum price set by APMDC.
Societies are empowered in tribal areas The Panchayati Raj Extension to Scheduled Areas (PISA) Act is strictly adhered to for sand removal in tribal areas. Tribals have the right to be on the sand here. Therefore, the responsibility of sand evacuation is entrusted to tribal societies. The APMDC provides the technical support for sand mining and evacuation for the societies headed by the District Collector. District collectors will issue rules and regulations in this regard from time to time.
Promotion of artificial sand making Rivers sand production is not growing to meet growing needs. Therefore, it is possible that the natural scarcity of natural sand in the future will be severe. The government has therefore decided to promote artificial (robotic) and production as an alternative to river sand. Artificial sand is known as manufacturing sand (M) sand. The government promotes companies that makeup M. Sand. Government agencies will also make sure that at least 50 percent of artificial sand is used. The government hopes to increase the existing incentives for artificial sand making.
The government aims to increase revenue During the last government period, the name of the Free Contractors Association of Transport Contractors was “Free Sand”
