Deregulating the coast

The new coastal regulation (Coastal Regulation Zone Notification, 2011) reads as a compendium of the myriad exceptions to the few rules - of industries and projects that may in general or based on a case-by-case review, use the coast despite the environmental damage they will cause. It represents a further move away from managing the coastal natural resources based on principles to one based on discretion and exigency. For a critique, see this India Together piece.
