Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) Notification 2011

After a eighteen-month long process, the CRZ Notification, 2011 is being formally notified and published. This replaces the CRZ Notification, 1991. This notification reconcile three objectives: protection of livelihoods of traditional fisherfolk communities; preservation of coastal ecology; and promotion of economic activity that have necessarily to be located in coastal regions. The CRZ Notification, 2011 demonstrates that the MoE&F is conscious of and alive to the need to bring about notifications in laws and regulations to ensure a demonstrably better balance between the equally urgent imperatives of faster economic growth and deeper environmental conservation.
