EQUATIONS comments to the pre draft Coastal Regulation Zone Notification 2010

This recent briefing paper details comments by "EQUATIONS" on the pre draft CRZ Notification 2010. Calls for MoEF to abandon the 'notification route' that has permitted the dilution of the CRZ Notification 1991 through amendments and bring in a CRZ bill.

While continue to identify various instances of CRZ violations by the tourism industry across the country, the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) in April 2010, issued another Pre Draft Coastal Regulation Zone Notification 2010 to amend the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) Notification 1991. MoEF continues to take the notification route in spite of a longstanding demand by coastal communities, movements and civil society organisations for a comprehensive legislation to regulate the coast. A democratic system of governance calls for a regulatory mechanism through legislation for the significant and extensive coastline of India. This brief paper is the Equations comments related to tourism and the Pre Draft Coastal Regulation Zone Notification 2010.
