Now you can buy Sand online: Click for more details

May 28: The Dakshina Kannada district administration has launched a user-friendly web portal and an app for buying sand. This initiative has been made by the district sand monitoring committee for online booking and supply has started from May 20. On an average 35 to 40 loads of sand are being sold.

District in-charge Minister U T Khader said that this portal ensures hassle-free supply and transportation of sand. this is a first of its kind and the app is on a trial basis. it will become full-fledged next season. It is an initiative to check the artificial sand crisis in the district. The web portal is directly monitored by the district sand monitoring committee and involves the customer, transporter and the sand permit holder (Dhakke owner). It is now made applicable to sand available in the coastal regulation zone (CRZ).

Sand buyer can visit and enter his mobile number to proceed further with the OTP sent to the number. The customer has to provide name, e-mail address and residential address before submitting details on the quantity (3 tonnes, 7 tonnes and 10 tonnes) and quality (coarse, medium and fine) of sand. The customer can select the source (Dhakke) of sand or let the system select the Dhakke situated nearest to the customer. Once the order is placed, Dhakke owner gets an alert on their App, and the transporter can pick the order through their App. Later, the transporter reaches the Dhakke and shares the OTP with the Dhakke owner before loading the sand. The customer has to provide the OTP received by him/her to the transporter once the sand reaches him. The sand monitoring committee office gets information of loading of the sand from the Dhakke; the movement of the lorry; and unloading at the customer’s place. Customers also can track the order placed by him online.

The district administration has so far received a good response for the online system of sand transportation. Dakshina Kannada DC Sasikanth Senthil S said that the sand will be available at less price through the system ans it will provide accurate details on the availability of sand and will prevent illegal transportation.
