Goa has been battling the issue of garbage strewn in public areas, including its beaches, due to the paucity of garbage management mechanisms. Travel and tourism industry stakeholders have complained to the Tourism Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar, claiming the burgeoning garbage menace was discouraging tourists from visiting Goa.
