Order of the National Green Tribunal (Principal Bench, New Delhi) in the matter of Sonya Ghosh Vs. State of Haryana & Others dated 05/02/2015 regarding illegal, unauthorised and the rampant mining going on in the District of Alwar.

The Tribunal noted with concern that the extent of illegal mining has adversely affected the ecology and environment of the area and there is definite degradation of the same. It is further undisputable that this area is surrounded by the Sariska Tiger Reserves on the one side and on the other side by Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary.
