The concept of Mining zones:

Rapid urbanization has resulted in the expansion of residential colonies close to the areas in which quarry leases have been granted. This has led to frequent representations from Residents associations for cancellation of the leases and prohibition of quarrying operations. On the other hand, the Association of crusher owners and quarry lease holders have been representing to the Government that they have established crushers long ago incurring huge expenditure and that at the time of taking leases and establishment of crushers.

Having considered the matter carefully and after due consideration of all relevant aspects such as safety, environmental protection as well as the need to ensure availability of material for the construction industry and realization of Government revenue, The Government of Andhra Pradesh vide G.O. Ms No.153 dated 01.03.2002 have decided to create Mining zones where activity other that quarrying will be prohibited. Once an area is identified as a Mining zone, no permission for house construction shall be allowed around the Mining Zone.

Objectives of the Concept:

1. To meet the growing demand of Road metal in urban areas.

2. Localize all road metal quarries at few designated places and thereby scattered localization of road metal quarries all around urban agglomerations is prevented.

3. To conduct quarrying and crushing operations in Systematic and Scientific manner in compliance with Environmental standards.

4. To increase the revenue of the Govt by way of introducing a fool proof way of collecting Mineral Royalty.  

The Role of APMDC:

The APMDC came forward to take over the areas identified as Mining zones for smooth operation of the quarries without causing any environmental hazards and disturbances to local inhabitants. There is a clear provision under Rule 9-A of AP Minor Mineral Concession Rules, 1966 for reservation of areas by the state Government through notification in the official Gazette for exploitation by the Government corporation established by the state.

The APMDC- Modus operandi adopted:

Blasters and other statutory persons and will allow/conduct the Centralized quarrying operations in Mineral bearing area of the mining Zone and supply the same to crushers identified to be located in the foot hill and non mineral bearing areas of the Mining zone.
