Goa, an Indian state known for its beach tourism, plans to ban drinking in public places and on beaches. In accordance with the new law, offenders will be punished with a fine of 2000 rupees or imprisonment for three months. Goa’s tourism minister, Manohar Aigaonkar, said the amendment was aimed at preventing empty bottles from accumulating on the beaches. “On our beaches and in places where tourists gather, no one else can drink alcohol. There it will be impossible to carry bottles. Also banned will be cooking in the open air. All these offenses will be punished with a fine of 2,000 rupees. If the fine is not paid, the criminal can be arrested and detained for three months, ”the minister said.
