The Supreme Court today stayed the NGT order against Deltin Caravela for CRZ violations. 

The NGT last week restrained offshore casino Deltin Carevela from conducting its operation on the Mandovi River, Goa unless it has Coastal Regulatory Zone (CRZ) clearance as per a 2011 notification. 

The NGT also directed the State Pollution Control Board to assess and recover compensation for damage to the environment on account of operations of Carevela withot requisite CRZ clearance, following due process of law. The NGT said the recovered money shall be utilised to restore the environment by preparing an action plan.

On appeal, the Bombay High Court directed the Deltin group to approach Supreme Court. 

“Based on legal advice, the company believes that HCEPL is not in violation of the CRZ Notification and HCEPL is pursuing legal remedies to challenge the order of the National Green Tribunal,” said Delta Corp’s company secretary and vice-president, Dilip Vaidya in a stock exchange disclosure on last Saturday. 

Meanwhile, Activist Kashinath Shetye who approached NGT against CRZ violations of Caravela has sent a contempt notice to Goa Coastal Zone Management Authority for permitting other casinos to operate with out  requisite CRZ permits. 

Update 1: Caravela is expected to resume operations from the evening of 14 May
