As per, Punjab Factories Rules 1952, Schedule – VIII, Sand blasting is prohibited.
"Prohibition of sand blasting - Sand or any other substance containing free silica shall not be introduced as an abrasive into any blasting apparatus and shall not be used for blasting"
May the attached Schedule VIII will help you.
