With the help of Except Pants, the stone was automatically lifted until 1994 but stone lifting is still stopped in this method. Researchers said, due to lack of adequate manpower, stone insufficiency and crippling engine, the abduction machine has been closed for nearly 12 years. The earlier stones were divided into groups such as sand, stone chips, and truck ballast, in the form of broken, washable and shaped pieces. As per the class, they were deposited separately and deposited in a stacked steel box with a four-cornered foil hanging on the ropeway. The capacity of each bucket is 237 kg (about 120 feet). The stone-filled bucket was sent to Chhatke. After the automation has been stopped, the contractors, after buying Boulder stones locally, break it down into different sizes. Then it was sent to the roof in the bucket. The interesting part is that the area is very much like the delta. The Dhalai river is divided into two parts, and it is surrounded by the pants and has been reorganized. Dhalai river has got near the Companyganj upazila Sadar with the Piyan River.
