The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court has dismissed the state’s appeal against its order directing that all sand mining and quarrying activities in the state be wound up within six months.

The order was affirmed by a Division Bench of Justices K Kalyanasundaram and T Krishnavalli.

In November last year, Justice R Mahadevan had issued the impugned direction, while considering a plea against state restriction on transport of silica sand, that had been imported by the petitioner from Malaysia.

The Bench noted that from the various reports on record, it is evident that Court orders have been violated time and again. Illegal mining activity has not been curbed and the mining has been continued beyond permissible limitsAs a result, irreparable ecological damage has followed.
