Maralu Pariveekshaka Launched in Mangalore: Illegal Sand Transportation Will Be Easily Monitored

DK DC Rajendra said that there have been complaints about lorries illegally transporting sand to Kerala while permit is issued for supply to Sullia. There have also been complaints about lorries switching off GPS system midway while transporting sand. The Dakshina Kannada District Sand Monitoring Committee headed by Deputy Commissioner K.V. Rajendra has launched an integrated monitoring system called Maralu Pariveekshaka to effectively monitor sand extraction and transportation,. This web-based system, has been developed and implemented by the State-run Karnataka State Electronics Development Corporation, which helps in real-time remote monitoring from the Smart City control room. The Sand Bazaar app used to book sand, has been integrated in the new Maralu Pariveekshaka system. A person booking sand can track the movement of the vehicle from the time of loading to the point it is unloaded. Officials too can keep a close tab on sand operations. This system gets feed from CCTV cameras installed at vintage points in different parts of the district.
