Panaji: As the south-west monsoon is all set to reach Goa coast by first week of June, the State Tourism department has directed the shack operators to dismantle their structures without causing any damage to the environment by today evening.

 

The shack operators have to submit the compliance report with regards to the temporary seasonal structures to the department by June 10. Also it has to submit report on the manner in which the other materials have been disposed off without environmental damage by June 20.

 

In a circular issued by the department, it  has pointed out  that some  of the shack allottees, while dismantling the shacks  at the end of the tourist season, dispose of  the material used for construction  of the shacks by  burning it on the beaches or burying the material in  the sand with total disregard to environmental concerns causing severe destruction of the beaches.

 

The department has warned that in case any shack allottee is found  causing any environment hazard while disposing of the material, that the allotment of the shack to such defaulter would be cancelled for the next tourism season besides being liable for prosecution under the law in force.

 

The department has directed all  shack allottees to strictly comply with the  timelines and  instructions, failing which strict action  will be initiated against them which  may include non renewal of license for the next tourism season 2018-2019.
