To stop illegal marketing and to curb artificial increases in sand prices in Telangana, the state government launched an online sand-booking portal, through which customers, companies and private firms can easily book sand online and track the same in real time. Physical booking of sand orders has been completely eliminated and replaced by the Sand Sale Management and Monitoring System (SSMMS). The portal is managed by the Telangana State Mineral Development Corporation, also known as TSMDC.
