Karnataka mulls relaxing coastal tourism restrictions


The¬†government of Karnataka, is looking to loosen Coastal Regulatory Zone (CRZ) regulations to promote the construction of beach resorts at the state’s 41 beaches and 11 islands.

At the recent Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Association of India (FHRAI) Annual Convention, Indian hoteliers have urged the government to revisit the CRZ guidelines, which currently permit the construction of a beach resort within 200m of the High Tide Line.

Sharing the development on the sidelines of the convention, Karnataka tourism minister, R V Deshpande, said: “We have already requested the central government to bring the restriction down to between 50m and 100m.”
