As per a PTI news report, the Centre is considering a proposal to open up 5 islands of Andaman and Nicobar to tourists to promote them as eco-tourism destinations, said Prakash Javadekar, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of Environment, Forest and Climate Change. Javadekar said during his recent trip to Andaman and Nicobar he explored the potential for developing five islands from tourism perspective.

"I went to the place recently. It is 94% forest and rest is Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ). The place is so beautiful it can easily beat Thailand and Phuket. But due to our policies we could not open it for public. We have prepared a plan and we are working on it to develop 5 islands of the place for eco-tourism without disturbing their forests.” The Andaman and Nicobar archipelago comprises more than 500 islands, many of which are uninhabited and restricted.
