Abstract – Sand is an essential need for all kind of construction work. Due to increase in population, large amount of construction is being done. Usually sand is taken from sand mill. The excess amount of sand has been taken from the sand mill without permission which is called “Sand theft”. Due to this, the environment is affected. There is no other prevention method available other then security officers. So we propose a system to monitor the amount of sand extraction by RFID reader which installed in the check post and RFID tag which is installed in the vehicle. The RFID tag should be mandatory in the vehicle. Sand mill is monitored by laser diode. The vehicle will be identified by its ID whether it is authorized or not. GSM module is used to send message to the higher official and media members if illegal amount of sand mining occurs by unauthorized vehicle or excess amount of sand is taken by authorized vehicle.
