Udupi, Aug 7: Karnataka Coastal District Traditional Sand Lifters’ Association has demanded a separate sand extraction policy for the three coastal districts of Udupi, Dakshina Kannada and Uttara Kannada.

Addressing presspersons on Saturday, Dinesh Suvarna, general secretary of the association said, "Sand lifters in the three districts had been extracting sand for generations from the river bed through traditional and environmentally friendly means. They went into the river on wooden boats and lifted the sand in the river with the help of buckets and then put in the boat. The boat was then rowed back to the river banks. The sand collected in the boat was then unloaded on the river banks.

However, the traditional sand lifters were affected due to the wrong policies of the administrators and the commercialisation of process of sand extraction. In order to protect the interests of the traditional sand lifters, we came together and formed the association last month. The techniques used for sand lifting in the coastal districts is different from those used in other places. Hence, it was essential that the government took immediate steps to have a separate sand extraction policy for the Coastal districts."
