Sand Supply from Sha Region

This is to inform our valued customers that the supply of sand from quarries and stocks in Wangduephodrang has exhausted much before the usual time this year due to scanty rainfall and less deposit of sand.

As sand supply from Sha Region constitute about 68% of the total supply in the country, NRDCL had deployed sand dredging machine capable to extract about 30 truckloads (240 m3) of sand per day from the middle of the river to meet regular supply mainly to individual customers. We also have sand supply options from other places like Phuentsholing, Gelephu etc. At the same time, our Regional Office in Phuentsholing can facilitate the import of sand from the neighbouring border areas for any interested customers. In the meantime, another machine will be deployed at site as early as possible to augment the supply even during the lean season.

As there is huge demand for dredged sand over our stocked sand, the supply from now on will be restricted to 1 (one) truckload per applicant on ‘first come first serve basis’ and only 30 truckloads will be issued per day in view of the production capacity of the machine and the overall stock limitation.

Therefore, we request our customers to kindly take note of the above and bear with us for any inconvenience caused. We request all potential buyers not to send trucks to site without approval.
For any inquiry, please call our toll free number 1091/PABX number 02-323834 (extensions – 139/137/123) or our Regional offices at 02-481272 (Sha) and 05-252154 (Phuentsholing).
