“The route of the vehicle from source to destination be tracked through the system using checkpoints, radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags, and Global Positioning System tracking,” reads the order dated December 11.

“Aravalli Rejuvenation Action Plan for reclamation/rehabilitation of the land illegally mined in the Aravalli region be also prepared and filed within two months,” it further reads.

NGT directed the Haryana government to ensure that the helpline, email ID, and web portal for making complaints regarding illegal mining and transportation be made functional by the Department of Mining and Geology within two months from the date of receipt of a copy of this

The next hearing in the case will take place on January 9.
