Centre for Responsible Tourism rejects draft tourism master plan for Goa


“The Centre for Responsible Tourism (CRT) has rejected the draft tourism master plan and tourism policy of the government, asking the department of tourism to re-initiate the entire process by taking into consideration the concerns that have been raised. According to CRT, the interim plan and policy was put up on the website on August 24, giving the public only 10 days to respond. It says the preparation of this document should have been a bottom-up approach wherein extensive interactions with people living in and around tourism places as well as people who are part of the unorganised tourism sector (as that is where the largest number of employment is) should have been organised.”
