The court was certained by advocate Manish Salkar, the advocate on behalf of the tourism department, that the department would not continue the allocation of shacks. He assured the court when the stuff came up for hearing on Monday. On the nest hearing on coming Monday, the tourism department has been asked to file its response. In the shape of wait on the draw of lots for the shack allocation, the counsels for the supplicants Nitin Sardesai and Ryan Menezes pushed for intervening respite. By alluring applications from the shack operators, the procedure has previously been begun of shack allocation by the tourism department. 960 applications for 350 shacks were received on the final date of September 25 in which 108 will be billed in South Goa and 242 in North Goa.
