PANAJI: Minister Rohan Khaunte today said that the Tourism sector in the state was recording losses due to unregistered activities.
“People were evading registration process, and it was revenue loss for the state government, and also illegalities were on the rise,” said Khaunte.
He further said the latest notification of the tourism department regarding ease of doing business is quite historical with simplification of the registration process and less documentation.
“Earlier the applicant used to waste time for the registration process, and that is the reason why people were avoiding registration of their business activities,” he added.
Khaunte said that the department has given them 15 days of time to register their activities with the tourism department.
“With legalizing of their business, they will not face any difficulty in carrying out their trade, and there will be revenue to the state,” he added.
The minister said that if activities are not recognized, there will be fines and seizures of activities.
The State Government this week reduced the existing compliances of the various touristic services by simplifying the procedure of registration/renewal from the point of view of Ease of Doing Business.
“It has been decided to rationalize and reduce the documents pertaining to various touristic services, which are currently required for New Registration/Renewal and the revised documents for New Registrations/Renewal,” the tourism department order states.
