MCC/DGM/MML/AF-1/14/289 Dated tofurnish Environment Clearance before lease is started. Mining of River Bed Material is proposed in the riverbed, the total mining area is 46.37ha. Mining will be carried out by open cast semi mechanized method. 2.3 NEED FOR THE PROJECT AND ITS IMPORTANCE TO THE COUNTRY OR REGION The demand for sand is increasing day by day construction activities & infrastructure development. With the rapid pace of development and industrialization, the demand of building material has enhanced manifold in the last10-15years and the demand of sand has risen mainly in infrastructure activities like roads, highways,buildings & townships.sand mining not only narrows the gap between the demand and supply if building material but also enhances employment opportunities and economic growth of the region. Besides, the production will also 4

5 benefit the State in the form of revenue generation. Apart from this, the project will generate direct and indirect employment opportunities from the near by villages. Also, the mine management will conduct medical camps at regular interval in the nearby villages and will help in providing infrastructure like school furniture, water tankers, etc. 2.4 DEMAND-SUPPLYGAP In India sand is extensively used in construction for infrastructure developments. Hence with the advent of growth and development of infrastructural projects in the state of Jammu & Kashmir, the demand of sand is on a high-rise. The local region demand is increasing; hence newer areas for sand reserves are approached. Hence the proposed project aims to fill the demand supply gap through optimum allocation and excavation of natural resources required to meet the demand effectively in the local region. 2.5 IMPORTSVS. INDIGENOUS PRODUCTION Indigenous production of mineral will be use for infrastructure sector in our country. No export is envisaged of the mineral presently and in future also 2.6 EXPORTPOSSIBILITY The proposed project does not have prospects export possibility. 2.7 DOMESTIC/ EXPORT MARKETS The total production from the mine will be directly transported by trucks provided by the transport contractors to local market. In India river sand is extensively used in construction for infrastructure developments. Hence with the advent of growth and development of infrastructural projects in the state of Jammu & Kashmir, the demand of river Bed Material (Sand,Boulder & Bajri) is on a high-rise. The local region demand is increasing; hence newer areas for river sand reserves are approached. Hence the proposed project aims to fill the demand supply gap through optimum allocation and excavation of natural resources required to meet the demand effectively in the local region. 2.8 EMPLOYMENT GENERATION(DIRECT ANDINDIRECT) DUETOTHEPROJECT DIRECT EMPLOYMENT The requirement of various technical and non-technical personnel is determined while adopting 5

6 the following norms:- 1. The mine will be worked in a single shift in day light hours. 2. In estimating the requirement of competent person, mates, etc. due consideration has been given to the statutory provisions. 3. Local person will be given employment in the project. Indirect Employment The sand available will provide agency employment in the value chain analysis, for place - utility and retail. Transportation and warehousing in the region required to transfer the excavated mineral will eventually be needed and therefore trucks and jobs in logistical activities will come up. There will be development of externalities for the mine workers petty shops (tea, repair stations for trucks etc.) as supporting services. As there would be vocational training camps and Technical Training of mining to the regional people, hence there will be potential manpower available for the proposed & surrounding mines of the tehsil. This will create indigenous technologies for sustainable development PROJECT DESCRIPTION 3.1 TYPE OF PROJECT INCLUDING INTERLINKED AND INTERDEPENDENT PROJECTS, IF ANY.

14 4.0 SITE ANALYSIS 4.1 CONNECTIVITY All villages in the proposed lease area of Kathua are connected by metal roads. The mine roads branching off the village roads are well consolidated to prevent sinking of heavy truck wheels (IVA), the mine roads are at least 10 m wide to permit easy maneuverability of trucks, provide cross-over s and changing points. The village Mai Chak nearest population center is 0.06 km away from the mining area & it is connected with other important towns and cities through a good network of roads with regular public transport services. Tehsil Headquarters & District Headquarter Kathua is km from mine site. To keep pollution off the mine, dust is allayed by spraying roads with water at intervals of 3 hrs by using tractor mounted water sprinklers. The water for this purpose is obtained from tube wells located nearby. 4.2 LANDFORM, LAND-USEAND LAND OWNERSHIP Landform The area of is marked by flat topography of sedimentary formations, which are surrounded by fine-grained blown soil overlying the sand deposits. Highest elevation is 329 mrl & lowest 326 mrl in the proposed lease area. The Ujh river flows from NE to SW direction.

16 4.3 TOPOGRAPHY (ALONGWITH MAP) The area applied is a flood plain of Ujh River. The Ujh is perennial Trans Boundary River flowing through north-western India and north-eastern Pakistan. It originates in the Himalayas at an elevation of 4300 m amsl in the Chamba District of Himachal Pradesh. It turns southwest at the boundary of Jammu and Kashmir then the river flows to the Pakistani border through Punjab State along it more than 80 km before entering Pakistan s Punjab Province. The Sewa River, in upper reaches of Basohli Tehsil, District Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir is one of the major tributary of Ujh. The Ujh River is a joint stream formed by the glacier fed Badal and TantGari rises from Bara Bangal a branch of the Dholadhar ranges of Himalayas. The course of the river in the lower reaches of Kathua and Punjabis in the maturity stage. The flood plains and Older Alluvium cover of Recent to Pleistocene age formed by the Ujh River in the river bed and either banks- Punjab and in the Kathua parts of J&K comprises of heterogeneous nature of the sediments- boulder conglomerates, quartzitic boulders, pebbles, gravels, cobbles,silt and fine to coarse sand. The Mangar Khad is one of the perennial tributary which joins the Ujh River in the north-eastern part of the lease area. 4.4 Existing Land usepattern: The applied area is (River bed of River Ujh). There is no reserves forest or protected forest land within the mining area. As it is a fresh area, no excavation from Ujh River has been done. 4.5 Existing Infrastructure: The following infrastructure is vailable: The site is connected by NH-1 which is at a distance of 0.69 km in North direction. Budhi Railway Station (2.25 km, NE) Jammu Airport (60.71 km NW) Proper power supply is present in nearby villages. Site services as per Mines Rules 1956 will be developed. First-Aid station with all necessary medical facilities, Toilets as per the provisions of Mines Rules will be developed. Regular medical checkup of the mine employees will be carried out as per the provisions of Mines Rules

17 4.3.1 GEOLOGY OF THE AREA The applied area is on ujh river bed. a tributary of ravi river. The southern and south-western limit of the area forms of the gentle terrain called as Outer Plains which merges with the Punjab State with elevations ranging from. 280 to 500 m a. m. s. l. whereas the northern and north-eastern parts are hilly and mountainous having elevations roughly between 500 and 3000 m a m s l with intermountain valleys called as Dun belt. The general slope of the area is towards south and southwestwards. Economy Industrial development in the city started in the 1950s with Atlas Cycle. Since then, many small and bigindustries has been established. Kathua has four industrial areas (Kathua, Kundli, Rai, Barhi) which contain numerous small- and medium-scale industries. Kathua is the major industrial area in Jammu & Kashmir, the Old Kathua 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 Jammu & Kashmir 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 problems. Geophysical Status The rock formations underlying the district ranges in age from Cambrian to Quaternary. The brief generalized geological succession in the district is given below Formation Lithology Age Younger and Older Fine to coarse grained sand, silt and clay Fine to Recent Alluvium medium grained micaceous sand, silt and clay. Coarse sand (cobble, boulder) Silt and clay in valley fill deposit to Upper Pleistocene 17

18 Upper siwalik Middle siwalik Conglomerate intercalated with sand, silt and clay dominantly coarse-grained sandstone and pink grey mudstone Medium to coarse-grained sandstones and subordinate grey brown mudstone Pliocene-Middle Pleistocene Upper Miocene Lower siwalik Red Mudstone and fine medium-grained Upper Miocene grey green sandstone Main Boundary Thrust Sandstone, clay stone, shale and siltstone Early Miocene Murree Thrust Quartzite,phylites, limestone and carbonaceous Proterozoic phylites Panjal Thrust Sewa Para Gneisses Proterozoic Hard formations forming hilly and mountainous terrain mainly comprises of igneous and metamorphic rocks belonging to the Panjal traps and Granitic intrusives. Alluvium of Quaternary and Tertiary age (Plio-Pleistocene) underlies the Outer Plains and consists of boulders pebbles, cobbles and coarse sand forms the Kandi belt near Siwalik foothills, and fine to coarse sands with occasional beds of gravel, pebbles and intervening clayey and silty layer constitutes the Sirowal belt. This formation is important from ground water point of view and sustains the water supply system in the area. Artesian condition is prevalent all over the Sirowal formations as wells as in transition zone between Kandi and Sirowal areas. The artesian aquifers present these formations consists of unconsolidated sediments of coarse clastics ranging in size from boulders to gravel in the loose clay matrix and occasionally alternating bands of clay of varying thickness in subordinate pack of gravels and pebbles in Sirowal belt. All the wells both handpumps and deep tubewells constructed in this zone are in autoflow conditions. Highest discharge autoflow well is located at Raghunathpura which is yielding 2700 lpm and depth of this well is 82.3 m bgl. Two major thrust faults are observed in the district viz Main Boundary Fault and 18

19 Murree Thrust. Main Boundary fault is a high angle fault along which Murree formations override the Siwalik formation. While along the Murree thrust the Pre Tertiary sequence of Panjal, Gala Bani, Sarthal-Daggar area is folded into major anticline. The most prominent structural unit in the district is Surin-Mastgarh anticline which has faulted axis. This anticline is truncated by Mandli-Kishanpur thrust which has brought upper Murree succession over Lower Siwaliks and is followed by Lower, Middle and Upper Siwalik subgroups. Physiography, drainage & Hydrology The physiography of the district is much varying. It is occupied by high mountain ranges, valleys, gorges and canyons. The southern and south-western parts of the district are covered by gentle terrain called as Outer Plains with elevations ranging from. 280 to 500 m amsl whereas the northern and north-eastern parts are hilly and mountainous having elevations roughly between 500 and 3000 m amsl with intermountain valleys called as Dun belt. Major physiographic slope is towards south and south-west. Deep valleys and steep escarpments are the conspicuous features of the hilly terrain in the district. The entire district is profusely drained by numerous ephemeral and small perennial streams, which originate from northern mountainous region and are flowing in southwestern direction. The perennial River Ujh that is a sub basin to Indus river along with its tributaries viz Ujh, Tarnah and Bein drains the district. Ujh river forms the district/state border with Himachal and Punjab State towards east. The major rivers draining the district are Ujh, Ujh and Sewa. Apart from the major drainage system there are number of seasonal streams (khads) traversing the whole district. They carry huge loads of boulders, pebbles, sand and silt during monsoon. They also generate flash floods immediately after rains causing extensive damage downstream. POPULATION The District has a population of over 5,44,206 comprising 2,85,308 Males and 2,58,898 females as per 2001 census. The density of population of the district has gone upto 205 persons per Square Km. Sex ratio is 907 females per 1000 male. Literacy Rate in Kathua district is 65.29%. The literacy percentage in case of Males is 75.73% and in case of Females is 53.92%. As regards 19

20 the main ethnic groups, Hindus constitutes 91% of the district while Muslims form 7% and Sikhs 2 %. SC Population is 22.83%. Out of total population of the district, 28.82% were main workers, 14.58% marginal workers while as 56.60% were non-workers. However, Among the main workers, cultivators and agricultural laborers accounted for 60.74% and 5.67 % respectively which obviously indicates that dependence on agricultural is of much more significance than any other sector/ occupation. 4.4 EXISTING LAND-USE PATTERN(AGRICULTURE,NON-AGRICULTURE, FOREST,WATER BODIES (INCLUDING AREAUNDER CRZ),SHORTEST DISTANCES FROM THE PERIPHERY OF THE PROJECT TO PERIPHERY OF THE FORESTS,NATIONALPARK,WILDLIFE SANCTUARY,ECO-SENSITIVE AREAS, WATERBODIES(DISTANCE FROM THE HFL OF THE RIVER),CRZ.INCASE OF NOTIFIED INDUSTRIAL AREA, A COPYOF THEGAZETTE NOTIFICATION SHOULD BEGIVEN Existing land-use pattern of the lease area Lease area is located in the rivers course no other activities except mining of sand is envisaged.

Sand mining not only provides the building material but also employment, economic growth of the state that will ultimately enhance the socio-economic status of the people of the region. The project will be environmental compatible to the surrounding due to the high standards of pollution control measures to be adopted during the operation activity. Thus it can be safely stated that the mining activities will not have any adverse effect on the surroundings, if the proper environmental management plan is adopted. ***************** 28
