Goa Tourism Minister, ET TravelWorld News, ET TravelWorld

A shortage of policemen was giving rise to illegal activities on Goa’s beaches, state Tourism Minister Rohan Khaunte said. Activities of unauthorised touts, guides and hawkers must be curbed and tourists driving their vehicles on beaches despite it being prohibited must be penalised, he told reporters.

Speaking after chairing a meeting with coastal belt MLAs of the state, he said, “There is a shortage of tourism security force, which needs to be addressed through a policy. For the upcoming tourist season, we should be ready with the number of police required to patrol beaches.”

Tourism Minister of Goa, Rohan Khaunte, said that the tourists visiting should take responsibility for themselves. He assured that the Tourism Ministry will provide all possible avenues of enjoyment and best infrastructure so that tourists can have good memories of their holiday in the state.

He said a meeting of deputy superintendents of police who have beaches under their jurisdiction will be called soon to discuss the issue. The state government wants to eradicate illegalities on beaches and give visitors the best experience, the Minister added. The move would include providing tourist guides with proper certification courses and ensuring only these are allowed to be part of the business.
