Goa Minister orders crackdown against non-licensed businesses
"We have already formed a list of foreigners doing business in different parts of Goa. We are going to start in the North first and then move towards the South," Rane told the media here.
"Most of these outlets, according to reports, are nothing but drug havens. We will take strict actions," the Minister said, adding that the Health Act was also in the process of being modified.
Rane also said that a drive would be conducted to launch a crackdown on clubs, including those operated by foreign nationals, who do not meet with the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) standards of food and hygiene.
The coastline of Goa is filled with small businesses run by foreigners, many of them in partnership with local businesses.
