Byndoor: Since the last two years, the people have been traumatized by the problem regarding sand availability in Udupi district.  The people of the district who have been waiting since the last 6 months hoping that permission will be provided for the transport of sand may have to remain waiting as though the season is drawing to an end there are no signs depicting the start of sand mining. However, a few people have capitalized on this situation by illegally extracting sand from Byndoor, Shiroor and transporting it to other districts.

The illegal sand transport is occurring with all its might and finally the concerned departments have finally woken up and the police and revenue officials have started taking action thereby bringing a temporary stop to the illegal business since the last three days.
