State Government will allow beach to open

GOA: The state government will allow beach shacks along the coastal belt to open from October for the tourist season, science and technology minister Michael Lobo said. The minister, who is Calangute MLA, also said the first charter with Russian tourists is expected to land in Goa in mid-October.

Lobo also said that pending permission from the Union ministry of home affairs (MHA), bars in the state would be allowed to open in September. He told that tourism stakeholders would meet CM Pramod Sawant. “We will tell the chief minister that since the Russian charter wants to come to Goa in mid-October, they should be given the green signal right away, and that the Union ministry of civil aviation and MHA should relax conditions for entry of tourists through charter flights,” Lobo said.
