Stone quarry laborers challenges and perspectives -a sociological study in Ramanagara district-Karnataka
In the present study, ‘quarry has been studied from the point of view of its stone extraction process and the emitted pollution in term of air, water, noise and its impact on the Social and Economic status of the inhabitants. Besides giving the socio-economic status it gives some attention on environmental perception toward air and sound pollution of the human inhabitation in the mining area including the migrated workers. To that extent this investigation may be considered as a contribution to the dynamic utilization of mineral extraction with reference to the impacts on environment. Karnataka is comparatively blessed with quarry products when considered in non-metallic minerals, which is in the highest position. Complete stoppage of these activities is highly not amenable by giving preference to environmental concern. There is, thus, a great need for the development of environmental/eco-friendly way of mining to minimize the impact.
