To provide sand at minimum affordable rates to Punjabis, my Govt. has capped sand and gravel prices at Rs. 5.50/cubic feet including loading charges across the state.
Also, royalty rate of ordinary clay and ordinary earth will be decreased from Rs 10 per ton to Rs 2.5 per ton.
I am responsible if anyone charges rates more than the prescribed ones.
I have categorically directed DCs & concerned officials to create maximum awareness about it and ensure complete compliance of my orders to sell sand and gravel prices at Rs. 5.50/cubic feet in Punjab.
