Dated on: Saturday 20th May 2023

According to a report by the Tamil Nadu government, the Madras High Court has been notified about the discovery of illegal quarrying activities on land, known as patta land. The information was provided in response to a public interest litigation filed by M Murugan, a local agriculturalist. The concerned region is Kadaladi taluk, located in Ramanathapuram district. M Murugan stated in his plea that the Gundaru river, which runs through Kadaladi taluk, plays a vital role in irrigating agricultural fields and recharging the groundwater. He alleged that an individual had commenced sand quarrying operations on the patta land parcels in Kadaladi and K Veppangulam without obtaining the necessary permissions from the authorities.
