Naik to work to extend Goa sound ban deadline


In what could be music to the ears of the tourism industry in Goa, Union tourism minster Shripad Naik agreed that 10pm is too early to stop playing music in the state and promised to try and extend the deadline to midnight.

Addressing tourism industry stakeholders, Naik said the central government will move a petition before the Supreme Court to review the sound ban especially in tourism destinations like Goa.

“We have discussed the issue and have decided to go to the Supreme Court. Ten o’clock is nothing, it should go up to be 12 o’clock. Our request is to classify the area,” Naik said, while talking about the need to extend the deadline.
