    Accompanied by joint commissioner of police J Elanchezhian, they took stock of the mining operations at the de-silting site and said that as per the directions of Punjab chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi, the administration is committed to keep a vigil on illegal mining and ensure that sand is sold at the government’s fixed rate, which is ₹9 per cubic feet at mining site (excluding transportation charges).

    They said that joint teams of the administration and police have been formed and directed to be extra vigilant and take immediate action against those involved in illegal mining. They added that the teams will carry out surprise checking round-the-clock to ensure adherence to orders.
