Dear friends at Nafso,

Clearing of mangroves to start hotels, industries and other businesses is also happening in India. A lot of it is illegal and violates the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ)notification of the Govt of India. However, the Govt itself keeps diluting the law in some instances to allow influential persons to get their way. The latest instance of this is the amendment to the notification that allows the setting up of a new airport in New Bombay in a mangrove area "subject to environmental studies".

However, what surprises me is Sri Lanka allows this to happen and you have to go to court to fight this. Sri Lanka's Coast Conservation Department probably precedes India's attempts at coast conservation. I have always assumed that there are laws protecting mangroves in Sri Lanka and some system of approvals (and rejections) before somebody can set up a hotel on a mangrove land. Or is it that such systems exist but are bypassed by the influential, as it happens in India?
