Lucknow: In order to prevent illegal mining, the Uttar Pradesh government today approved a short-term policy on mining to end the scarcity of building material in the state.
The government has allowed only e-tendering to give permits for mining in a limit of 10 acres of area during the next six months period to cope with the shortage of sand and other building materials. The government also announced that transportation of mining produce would only be allowed with MM-11 permit in the state. The decision was taken at a meeting of the state cabinet here which was chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Health Minister Sidharthnath Singh, briefing mediapersons here, said the GoM, headed by Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, gave three recommendations which were accepted by the Cabinet.
