Eight beaches of India got 'blue flag' status



An International Institute has recognized eight beaches of India as 'Blue Flag'. Among those who received the blue flag were Shivrajpur (Gujarat), Ghoghla (Diu), Kasarakod and Padubidri (Karnataka), Kapad (Kerala), Rushikonda (Andhra Pradesh), Golden (Odisha) and Radhanagar (Andaman).

Indeed, India is developing the coasts according to 'Blue Flag' standards to make the beaches environmentally and environment friendly under its Integrated Coastal Zone Management Project. The 'Blue Flag' award is conferred internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), Denmark, an NGO.

Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Sunday that it is a moment of pride for India that the international institute has recognized eight beaches of India as 'Blue Flag'.
