This Pig Iron Ore plant on the banks of Mandovi River at Amona, Bicholim is giant violation of Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ). This was brought to the notice of Union Minister of Environment and Forest Jairam Ramesh when he visited Goa for the conduct of Public Hearing on CRZ on August 30, 3009. He on the spot publicly directed Goa State government to set up Goa State Coastal Zone Management Authority within 24 hours and take cognizance of this violation and other like like this. It is not yet know if the State government has complied with the directives of the Union Minister.
