Beaches in Raigad district require hi-tech technical assistance from abroad to avoid deaths. The collector of Raigad has recently sought for the technical solution in this regard. Also as part of its transformation, the beaches will be given ISO certification for the first time.
Besides, a proposed floating jetty could be constructed in Murud to clean the beaches through the ASI.
According Dr Vijay Suryavanshi, the Raigad collector, “Ten grampanchayats will undergo transformation soon because of tourist footfalls on beaches. Alibaug and Kashid beach will undergo makeover first. Safety measures at beaches like those in place in other countries are being mooted.”
Suryavanshi added, “A floating jetty has been proposed through ASI in Murud. A new jetty will be constructed for Padmadurg.”
Apparently, with regard to giving ISO certification to the beaches, it will help in preventing deaths from the increasing pollution in sea that has raised an alarm for the district administration.
