Goa to impose Rs 10,000 fine for drinking on beaches

India: The Goa Tourism department will now impose a fine of Rs 10,000 for drinking on beaches after several areas were found littered with bottles post new year celebrations, an official said on Friday. State Tourism Director Menino D’Souza told PTI that boards cautioning people against drinking on beaches have been installed.

The state government, in January 2019, amended the Tourist Trade Act imposing fine of Rs 2,000 for individuals and Rs 10,000 for groups drinking on beaches, he said.
