New Jetty Policy to Regulate Sea Vessels

The government wants to make basic facilities for tourists at jetties. The tourism department is currently working on a new jetty management policy which all cruises and boats will come under. The current policy only covers boats and cruises at the Santa Monica Jetty. So, legitimate businesses are being undercut by touts in the absence of regulations.

“Now, we are trying to come out with a jetty management policy that will streamline and regulate activities of all tourist vessels in the state,” tourism secretary, J Ashok Kumar said. Goa is not getting the revenue as the ticketing software is only for the Santa Monica jetty and doesn’t apply to other boats operating elsewhere. “We want to regulate activities at all jetties. A jetty management policy with a wider ambit to cover all boats will be introduced,” he added.

The intention of all this is not to stop or reduce any activities but to ensure that all operator and touts register as agents and have a legitimate business.
