Bantwal: In accordance, to the instruction of the deputy commissioner of the district the sand recovered during the dredging being conducted since a  a month at a distance of 500 meters from the dam, near Talapady has been collected in two vast yards. Presently, the sand is being distributed through the Sand Bazaar App and more than 500 loads of sand is being dispatched every day. The area where the sand is being stored has currently changed into a selling centre.

The contract of dredging is given to Nalco Company of Delhi and they have given sub contract to a private company of Mangaluru. The dredging process is being conducted under CCTV vigilance.

Currently, the sand is being directly transported from the stock point to the door of the buyer at a reasonable rate, without the middlemen and the system is functioning efficiently.
