A Legal Briefing Note on Sand Mining in Coastal Areas: Legal Procedures to Follow

Hello, The team at Uttar Kannada, had undertaken a case which related to sand mining in coastal areas. Once the case was taken up, it was realised that people were not aware of which institutions to approach and which laws were to be used for solving issues related to sand mining. The team, along with the legal research team in Delhi, then set about putting together a document in which the legal procedure to combat sand mining was explained in a step by step manner. India Water Portal has put out the information put together by the team in the form of a legal briefing note, which can be accessed here:


This version is in English and caters to sand mining in coastal states in general. In a few days, the Kannada version will also be available which will be specific to the state of Karnataka. @namati_staff


For those interested here is the legal briefing note in Kannada, a southern Indian language: http://kannada.indiawaterportal.org/?p=4549
