10 December 2010

PANAJI: The Planning Commission has convened a meeting in New Delhi on December 27 to discuss salvaging of the motor vessel, the River Princess, and funds of about Rs 69 crore for removing the vessel lying grounded for over a decade.

…………The grounded vessel had been declared a state disaster some time back and this entitles the state to avail of central funds to remove it. Extensive damage to the shoreline, including erosion and a loss of 100 metres of the beach for just over a length of 1 km of Dando and Sinquerim beaches due to the presence of the vessel has been confirmed by the National Institute of Oceanography (NIO).
