Goa’s state cabinet has granted a twelve-month extension for off-shore casinos to continue to operate on the Mandovi River in Panaji until October 1, 2022.
According to The Times of India, the government had identified four possible sites to relocate casinos but all were found to be technically not feasible.
Authorities have proposed extending the time limit for shifting offshore casinos from the river until next year. An extension had been previously settled in February. At the time, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said casinos were going to remain where they are until an alternative location is found.
