Goa Government Seeks Virtual hearing on Coastal Zone Management Plans
Goa government has asked the Union Environment Ministry for its consent on virtual public hearing on Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP). This is Goa's second such appeal to the ministry as it has already missed the May 31 deadline of NGT. The move followed NGT's nod to Maharashtra for digital hearing. Reportedly, demarcation of High Tide lines is to be done in CZMP as per amendments in CRZ-notification-2011.
