Modification of Guidelines


18 August 2010

No proposal has been received from the Ministry of Tourism to modify the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) Notification, 1991 to give boost to tourism industry.

Based on the request made by Andaman and Nicobar Administration for relaxing CRZ Notification, 1991 for promoting tourism in islands, the Ministry of Environment and Forests had issued an amendment dated 29th July, 2003 to the CRZ Notification, 1991 relaxing the No Development Zone to 50mts based on Integrated Coastal Zone Management studies. No such request has been received from any other State/Union territory Government. However, all proposals relating to tourism projects are considered under the provisions of the CRZ Notification, 1991, as amended from time to time.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Environment and Forests (Independent Charge) Shri Jairam Ramesh, in a written reply to a question by Shri Ramsinh Rathwa in Lok Sabha today.
