Goa shack issue moves towards resolution


The Goa state tourism department has been relieved of the task of going through the motions of allotment of shacks for this season.

However, with the tourism season set to take off next month, the tourism department will have to dispose off many complaints received from shack operators and others alleging violations of the provisions of beach shacks policy, before permissions are issued for the season to last year’s allottees of beach shacks, ccording to a report in the Times of India. Last season, shacks were allotted for a period of three years valid up to 2016.

Tourism officials entrusted with the task of earmarking beach shacks, will have to also consider numerous requests and demands from hotels located close to the beach, as well as from private beach shack operators not to allow beach shacks in front of their properties.
