Goa water sports association opposes govt proposal


Water sports operators in Goa have decided to oppose any tourism department proposal to appoint a private contractor to operate the ticket booths at various places which are currently being operated by local water sports associations. Waters sports operators from both north and south Goa held a meeting at Calangute on Monday morning to discuss this and other issues under the aegis of the Water Sports Association de Goa.

A water sports operator from Candolim said the tourism department has received complaints from tourists that water sports operator were cheating tourists. Last year, the tourism department had set up booths at all beaches and other places of water sports activities to prevent squabbles and fights between water sports operators over customers. A queue system had been initiated and all operators would get equal business.
