NGT has refused to intervene CRZ

Goa: The National Green Tribunal has refused to intervene in yet another case of Coastal Regulation Zone violation where the Goa Coastal Zone Management Authority (GCZMA) had ordered demolition of a structure at Gonsua Salcete.The Tribunal said that it cannot interfere where it is clear that the construction is within 200m of the High Tide Line (HTL), in violation of CRZ norms.An appeal was filed against the GCZMA order issued in February 2019, directing demolition of a decorative retaining wall, restaurant and toilet block in a property at Gonsua.

We find that there was an inspection carried out during which conditions for permission were found to be violated. It is undisputed that the construction is within 200m of the HTL, which is a ‘No Development Zone’ even in CRZ area. Such permission was obviously subject to strict conditions. In the present case, there has been violation of such conditions. In view of the above, we do not find any ground to interfere with the impugned order,” the NGT said, dismissing the appeal.
