  • The sale or auction of plots impacte by the CRZ is not restricted.
  • The plot partially falls under CRZ-IA and CRZ-II according to the CZMP of 2011, which was authorise in 2019; the same is shown in the marketing picture.
  • According to the CRZ guidelines, allotment 2A is on the landward side of the current road and does not contain any mangroves.
