CAG pulls up Goa tourism department

The comptroller and auditor general of India (CAG) has pulled up the tourism department for lack of sewage networks in the coastal belt in its recent report.

An inspection of some shacks carried out by health officers in February 2011 had revealed that some shack licensees did not obtain a ‘no objection certificate’ from the health department. Sewerage was released into the sand causing environmental pollution on the beaches. While Goa coastal zone management authority (GCZMA) noticed violations of coastal zone regulations by 433 shacks during the period 2007-11, the department blacklisted only four shack owners, which were independent of violations noticed by GCZMA.
