Amendment soon

The Goa Government will soon amend the State Tourism Trade Act to make sports mishaps a cognisable offence under the provisions of Criminal Procedure Code.

Admitting that there were irregularities in the running of water sports activities on Goan beaches by private operators leading to mishaps, Tourism Secretary M. Modassir said, “ If they do not take certain safety measures and precautions, then they will be penalised.”
