2.2 Brief description of nature of the project
The proposed mining contract area is 40.85 Hect. of Tikola-2 Sand Unit, Sonipat , Haryana is located
on 10 km of NH 1 in West Direction. It has been proposed to excavate approximately 14,00,000 MT per
annum of sand from the bed of the Yamuna River/Private Agricultural field. The Sand material will be
replenished during monsoon season every year, as the mining will be undertaken on a rotation basis, in
such a way that excavated areas of previous years of mining will act as depository for the post monsoon
2.3 Need for the Project and Its Importance to the Country or Region
Building huge infrastructure as envisaged by Government of India/Haryana Government particularly in
road and housing sector requires basic building and construction raw materials. The sand is one of
primary building material required for the purpose. The mining activities as proposed are the backbone
of all construction and infrastructure projects as the raw material for construction is made available
only from such mining. The sand to be excavated is in high demand at the local market for real estate
and infrastructure industry. This project will also provide employment to local people helping them
earn livelihood. In addition to this, it will further prevent widening of the Yamuna river bed due to the
deposition of sediments which if not mined out will result in raising of the river bed causing flooding,
damage to the adjoining areas, destruction of life and property.
2.4 Demands-Supply Gap
The demand for Sand is ever growing with the growth of the infrastructure sector in our country. The
mineral is used mainly in the construction activities like roads, buildings, bridges etc specially in NCR.
The requirement for the mineral is always high in the nearby cities and towns. Therefore there is always
a good demand of the mineral in the domestic market.
2.5 Imports vs. Indigenous Production
The demand in the domestic market is high sand mineral is available in abundant quantity in the
contracted area and can be excavated indigenously. Import does not apply in the present case of sand

2.6 Export Possibility
There is no proposal to export the sand.
2.7 Domestic/ Export Markets
Domestic Market
The sand excavated will be directly sold in the market.
Export Market
The proposed mining activity is for indigenous consumption only for real estate and
infrastructure sector etc. No possibility of export of sand from this contract.
2.8 Employment Generation (Direct and indirect) due to the project
This project operation will provide livelihood to the poorest section of the society. It will provide
employment to the people residing in vicinity and indirectly by the development of supporting
3.1 Type of Project Including Interlinked and Interdependent Projects, If Any.
The proposed project of 40.85 Hect area is of Sand mining project. The mineral excavated will be
directly transported to the real estate, construction and infrastructure projects.

3.3 Details of Alternate Sites
Rivers and streams by far have been the most lucrative and attractive source for extracting large volume
of building materials such as boulders, stone, pebbles, sand and gravel for a variety of construction
activities. Following are some advantages of using river sediments as compared to the crushing of rockmass from rock-in-situ quarries.
Project Name: Tikola-2 Sand UNIT, Sand mining (minor mineral)
District: Sonipat, Haryana
M/s Anand Singh and Co.
Due to attrition, the material is already granulated and rounded, well sorted and generally clean
Sediments can easily be collected / extracted by digging less deep pits in active channel or dry
river beds of upper terraces
Invariably free from weak materials and interstitial loose / fine material.
Not far from cities or market as the civilization has developed near the bank of rivers
Require comparatively less processing.
Natural replenishment takes place annually due to transportation of sediments from upper
course/reaches during high stage of river, which is achieved a number of times during monsoon
In plain reaches, where the bed slope is gentle, the river bed is overlaid with matrix mainly comprising
of sand of different gradation along with silt and clay. In the present case, the Government of Haryana
has issued LOI for riverbed mining to the project proponent for carrying out extraction of sand in
Riverbed and Private Agricultural land falling within the territory of Tikola-2 Sand unit, Sonipat. Thus,
the mining site has been specified by the government and thus, there is no case for alternate site studies.
Besides this any other alternative other than river bed mining like mining of rock in-situ quarry shall
result in exorbitant cost, result in comparatively higher land degradation and cause more environmental
3.3.1 Size or Magnitude of Operation
The mine contract area is land in the river section and the project is contemplated to win the mineral
sand by fully mechanized open cast method of mining without blasting. The daily production has been
contemplated as 4666.66 MT.
3.4 Size or magnitude of operation
The proposed mine has contract over an area of 40.85 Hect.. The maximum rated capacity of the
project will be 14,00,000 MT Per annum which will be excavated out in layers upto a depth of 3m in
Riverbed & 9m in Agricultural field.
3.5 Project description with process details
Method of Mining
The method of mining is open cast mechanized method. Mining will be done by deploying earthmovers
like excavator/Poclain, Backhoe and loaders for loading of mineral into trucks, tippers and
tractor/trolleys and directly transported into market. Mining Machinary and transporting vehicles may
be deployed on contractual basis. No mineral beneficiation will be carried out at the site

4.6 Environmental Settings (Secondary Sources)
Physiography & Drainage:
The River Yamuna, which borders the district in the East, is the main river in the district. The district is
drained by drain no.8, which was constructed to take out excess monsoon runoff from uplands to River
Yamuna. The areas east of upland plains are more prone to flooding because of its low-lying nature.
Depth to water level during pre-monsoon varies from 1.41– 23.22m while during post-monsoon it
varies from 0.99 – 24.46m. The depth to water level lies within 10m below the land surface in most
parts of the district. It rests between 2 to 25m deep in the eastern side and 2 to 10m in the north western
parts of the district. An only in small patch in the Rai block, water table is deeper having range of 20m
to 40m.
The area forms a part of the Indo-Gangetic plains and exhibit flat terrain with general slope from north
to south. The maximum elevation of the plain is 230m above msl. Topographically the district can be
Project Name: Tikola-2 Sand UNIT, Sand mining (minor mineral)
District: Sonipat, Haryana
M/s Anand Singh and Co.
divided into the following units.
1. Active flood plains along the present day course of the river Yamuna in eastern part of the district.
2. Abandoned flood plains of recent past. These are generally bordering the active flood plains and are
wider, low lying flat tracts.
3. Upland plains representing the relatively older river deposits. The western Yamuna canal has been
roughly aligned along the ridge formed by upland Plains.
Climatic condition
The climate of the district is characterized by the dryness of the air with an intensely hot summer and a
cold winter. The cold season starts by late November and extends to about the middle of March. It is
followed by hot season, which continues to about the end of June when the southwest monsoon arrives
over the district. The period from July to September is the southwest monsoon season. January is the
coldest month with mean daily maximum temperature 21.3oC and mean daily minimum temp 7.3oC.
May is the hottest month with mean daily maximum temp 26.6oC. In May and June, the maximum
temperature sometimes reaches about 47oC.
The normal annual rainfall of the district, based on the record for the period 1901-1980 is 567 mm
recorded in 30 rainy days in a year. About 76% of the annual rainfall is recorded during the southwest
monsoon from June-September. July is the wettest month of the year with 7.5 rainy days and 169 mm
rainfall. During the period 1901-80, deficient to scanty rainfall was recorded in 18 years. The
probability of occurrence of rainfall in the range 400-700 mm is 0.65.
Administrative set-up
The district comes under Rohtak division administratively. It has the following administrative
Area of block (
Industrial development in the city started in the 1950s with Atlas Cycle. Since then, many small and big
industries has been established. Sonipat has four industrial areas (Sonipat, Kundli, Rai, Barhi) which
Project Name: Tikola-2 Sand UNIT, Sand mining (minor mineral)
District: Sonipat, Haryana
M/s Anand Singh and Co.
contain numerous small- and medium-scale industries. Sonipat is the major industrial area in Haryana,
the Old Sonipat Industrial Area has now gone into a limbo of sorts. The area is no longer under the
District Industries Centre (DIC) and its current monitoring authority the Haryana Industries and
Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) is yet to complete the handover formalities.
Due to this, the 100 operational units in the industrial area spread across 140 acres are in a fix. These
units do not know to whom they should consult and where should they go for redressal of infrastructure
Geophyical Status
About 28% area is adversely affected with shallow ground water salinity. Such areas include few
localities in Mundlana, Gohana, Kathurah and Kharkhauda blocks. Ground water is saline within 20m
depth over half of the Sonepat district particularly in the areas lying in west, northwest, and south of the
district. However, the impact of ground water salinity is less in the vicinity of river and canals. Part of
the study area over northern eastern, northeastern, central and southeastern direction has fresh quality
of ground water within a depth of 40 to 80 m b.g.l. Such areas include blocks of Sonepat, Rai, &
Ganaur. Major area has saline quality of ground water in the depth range of 40 to 80m depth b.g.l. The
prominent localities where considerable thickness of aquifer bearing fresh ground water has been
inferred are Kheora, Ganaur, Chirasmi, Quamaspur, Kheri-gujar, Rajpura, Ghasauli, Murthal, Majrimawai and Ahulana. Part of the area over southeast and small pockets in extreme north and northeast of
Sonepat district has been identified bearing fresh ground water within a depth of 100 to 150m b.g.l. The
prominent localities where fresh water available within 100 to 150m depth are around Simbalgarh and
Jagdishpur lying in extreme northeast and southeast of the district adjacent to Yamuna river. Part of the
district over northwest, west and south is water logged which is also one of the reason for ground water
salinity. Preventive measures are suggested to stop water logging. The salient features of the study are
shown in figure .
In a bid to strengthen infrastructure support to the local industries, National Bank for Agriculture and
Rural Development (Nabard) has sanctioned Rs 205.7 crore for 25 road projects in nine districts of
Haryana, including Sonipat and Karnal. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and micro, small and
medium enterprises (SMEs) falling in the area of these 25 road projects have welcomed the initiative
and reverberated in unison that it would help the industries grow once the proposed roads become

The Project will bring economical benefits to the state by way of royalty on the mineral excavated and
despatched . Achieving a huge infrastructure as being envisaged by Government of India particularly in
road and housing sector requires basic building materials. Sand is one of primary building material
required for the purpose. The mining activities as proposed are the backbone of all construction and
infrastructure projects as the raw material for construction is available only from such mining. Sand
excavated is in high demand at the local market for real estate industry. This
the society/economically backward population
and tribals in the area. It provides employment to the people residing in vicinity directly or indirectly.
The mine management will also help nearby villages by providing aid to school, conducting medical
and social awareness camps, helping in formation of self help groups, etc. Thus the project will bring
about socio-economic improvement of the area and will prove beneficial to the area.
