A division bench of the Bombay High Court at Panaji comprising Justices Dhanuka and Chauhan issued notice on 13.3.2019 to the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change on PIL filed by the Goa Foundation and the Colva Civic and Consumer Forum challenging the CRZ Notification of 18.1.2019 on several environmental grounds.
Goa is the second respondent in the matter. The High Court has already issued notices on two PILs filed by the Federation of Rainbow Warriors, Margao, and Kashinath Shetye challenging the notification.
MOEF&CC has been directed to file its response in two weeks. The petitions will be heard together on 22.4.2019.
