Public Announcement

With about 900 construction sites registered with NRDCL for sand supply, NRDCL has supplied around 23,300 truckloads of sand from Sha from January till 15 June, 2018. However, this volume is not sufficient to meet the demand of growing construction sites especially in Thimphu and Paro. While the supply of stocked sand has been exhausted, the dredging activity with six dredging machine is in full swing and can provide around 60-75 truckloads of sand on daily basis.

To provide uniform access for sand to all construction owners, only one truckload of sand permit is provided per week per construction site to clear the backlog of money receipts already issued and facilitate supply to new permit holders. Owing to this, NRDCL has also stocked sand in other places like Gelephu and Lhamoizingkha. Customers are requested to supplement sand from these areas in case of bulk requirement. NRDCL is also developing alternate resources to river sand and this will be made available within July 2018.

Considering the unfavorable situation, the management requests our valued customers to kindly cooperate and bear the inconvenience caused due to scarcity of resources during summer.

For more inquiry, please call our PABX No. 02-323834 (extensions-139/111) or 02-481272, 05-252154 and 06-251706/03-631470.
