    Summary: On December 1, 2016, the petitioner made a representation to the PWD to introduce online booking of sand, and electronic payment. Citing demonetisation, the Tamil Nadu Sand Lorry Owners Federation has approached the Madras High Court for a direction to the State Public Works Department to permit online booking of sand and to accept the sale price by way of DD/debit/credit cards. According to the petitioner, in the aftermath of the Central government’s decision, the association’s members were finding it difficult to pay the price of sand in cash.
