GCZMA directs owner to revert hotel to residence

The Goa Coastal Zone Management Authority (GCZMA) directed an owner of a bungalow in Ribandar to revert the use of his construction from commercial back to residential purpose, for which the authority had granted him approval.


Social activists Kashinath Shetye and Ketan Govekar had filed a complaint regarding the alleged illegal construction of a hotel by felling mangroves in property bearing chalta No. 12 of PT sheet No. 12 at Ribandar. After GCZMA issued a showcause notice to the owner and arguments were heard, the authority inspected the site.

Based on the site inspection report, GCZMA decided that the construction was legal and there was no evidence to prove the allegation of mangrove felling. Shetye challenged the GCZMA order dated December 15, 2015 before the national green tribunal (NGT), Pune.
