Ban on transportation of sand outside Goa

The director of mines and geology has slapped a ban on transportation of sand to any destination outside the state’s territorial limits. All transit passes that are being issued by the directorate for transportation of ordinary river sand will bear a stamp with the words “Valid in the State of Goa only.” The ban has been imposed under Section 15 of the Mines and Minerals (Development & Regulation) Act, 1957 (Central Act 67 of 1957).
