Making the order, the Goa Tourism director Menino D’Souza said that boards have been installed at the beaches to warn people against drinking. “The tourism department will enforce the amended Act through police. Once we have our Tourist Police Force, we will be able to do it on our own,” the order read.

The new rule is aimed to ease the burden of cleaners at the beach who clean the beaches across Goa as many as three times a day. Also, people usually have a habit of breaking the alcohol bottle after use; the pieces of which often end up on the sand and cause injuries to tourists.

D’Souza also told Herald Goa, “The notifications were issued two years ago and the responsibility for enforcing this is with the police. They are a government body and can issue challans. No one else can. A proposal is in place to set up a force for the tourism industry. It will happen, of that there is no doubt.”
