PANAJI: The Goa tourism department will be conducting a study on shack capacity of each of beaches across the state before the tourist season begins in October.

The Goa Coastal Zone Management Authority (GCZMA) will write to the Tourism department asking them to study how many shacks can be accommodated on the beaches, a senior official said today. Goa is bestowed with 105-kilometre-long coastline, which has several hundred shacks and structures serving food and liquor specially thronged by tourists.

The official said the study would be conducted beach-wise with the prescribed limit per stretch. Beaches like Calangute, Baga and Colva have highest number of shacks, while at some stretches there are only couple of them are installed.

The shacks are allotted to unemployed youths of the state for a period of three years.
