Radhanagar beach retains Blue Flag certification

Port Blair ,

      Radhanagar beach has retained the Blue Flag certification in the Blue Flag International Jury results of 2021-2022, which was conveyed by the Denmark-based NGO Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). This certification is also a global recognition of India's conservation and sustainable development efforts. The Blue Flag certification is a globally recognised eco-label accorded by 'FEE, Denmark' based on 33 stringent criteria under four major heads; environmental education and information, bathing water quality, environment management and conservation, and safety and services at the beaches.
    Blue Flag beach is an eco-tourism model endeavouring to provide the tourists or beachgoers clean and hygienic bathing water, facilities, safe and healthy environment and sustainable development of the area.
   The certification has been retained due to the strenuous and persistent efforts of the Beach Management Committee under the chairmanship of DC (SA). The DC (SA) complimented the entire team of the Beach Management Committee on this major achievement. He further encouraged them to maintain the facilities developed under the Blue Flag Programme so that the aesthetic and beauty of the beach is maintained for the tourists, a press release from Deputy Commissioner (SA) said.
