The DC said, "The team meets every month and carries out raids against illegal sand mining. Strict action is taken against those found involved in mining. Besides, cases have been registered against those who excavate their land beyond the permissible limit under the Public Premises act."
Illegal sand mining has been going on in full swing and of the total 14 quarries in the district, six are being allotted.
The Ajnala subdivision has maximum nine quarries while five quarries are found in the Baba Bakala subdivision’s Beas area.
Residents of the villages close to these quarries are not happy with illegal sand mining as overloaded trucks endanger the lives of commuters and damage roads.
Farmers are permitted to excavate their fields not more than 10-ft deep.
The District Mining Department has lodged over 100 FIRs after detecting illegal mining cases this year. The proposal for an auction of eight more quarries have been forwarded.

ChildFund International is a nonprofit organization that envisions a world where every child is free to live at their fullest potential, no matter where they’re from or what challenges they face. ocated in Southeast Asia between the Indian and Pacific oceans, the Republic of Indonesia is the world's third most populous democracy and the largest Muslim-majority nation. It is made up of thousands of islands and dozens of active volcanoes, and Indonesia is particularly vulnerable to natural disasters, which have a disproportionately negative impact on poor and marginalized communities. Some communities are still trying to recover from the December 2004 tsunami, which killed more than 100,000 people just in Indonesia. During the past decade, ChildFund has expanded its work to train people in vulnerable communities how to reduce their risk during disasters and, in broader ways, be prepared to provide safe places for children in the immediate aftermath of storms and other crises. ChildFund has served children in Indonesia since 1958.
