New CRZ Plans On Anvil

All the coastal states in the country have been asked to freeze the existing Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) plans and prepare new ones as per the new CRZ notification issued earlier this year.
The direction came in the wake of requests from various states for re-classification of the zones based on the existing CRZ plans even though the new notification was issued in the beginning of the current calendar year.

The MoEF observed that the request for re-classification could pave way for regularization of violations which would be contrary to the 2011 notification.
At the meeting held in May, it was decided that all requests for re-classification would be returned to the concerned States to study them in the wake of the new CRZ notification.
